We are excited to be part of the new Lymm Community Garden at Lymm Sanctuary Hub and Business Centre. They have enabled us to find a place to put our tree and get the relevant permissions. Please help us fundraise for the costs of our tree, AND the new Community Garden. We have a sub fundraising page for anyone specifically wanting to donate to the tree costs, but please also consider supporting the bigger project.

The Lymm Tree is an exciting piece of community artwork to be located in the new Community Garden at the Lymm Sanctuary Hub and Business Centre. Please can you help us to fundraise to support this exciting community space in Lymm.
Following the successful Jubilee Yarn Bomb in the village, and the positive response to the crowns and guards we would now like to do something on a much greater scale that will bring even more attention and fun to Lymm Village.
Last year a village in Devon created a yarn Christmas Tree, and we would like to create The Lymm Tree.
It will be approximately 4m tall and a 2m diameter at the bottom, made up of hundreds of crochet / knitted squares, supported on a steel and wire structure, with a concrete base in the ground.
Initially the aim is for this to be a Christmas tree, but we aim to build on this and change the theme over the seasons to support other events in Lymm. For example cascading poppies for Remembrance, ducks at Easter in line with the Duck Race, boats / cars for Historic Transport Day, general linkage to the canal. The three part modular structure will give us flexibility for other seasonal theme formats.
This has already begun as a real community project with many crafters of all ages contributing their squares to the project.
