THE WILLIAM LEE CHRISTMAS TREE
William Lee has been invited to join the local Christmas Tree Festival at Dronfield Church. The theme was that each tree had to reflect the business it was from, so we decided to use what we manufacture – iron castings! Chris Hall (in the photo) our fabricator/welder expertly turned our castings into a very unusual Christmas tree! The tree is currently on display along with over 100 other trees, the festival closes on Sunday 9th December and is well worth a visit. The tree has had many compliments for its unique industrial design.
The finished tree weighs in at a massive 150kg. We used 40 castings weighing a total of 86kg, a centre pole weighing 26kg and finally a base weighing 38kg!! The tree will be used in William Lee’s reception area at Christmas for years to come, and throughout the rest of the year it will be a talking point in our visitor centre. Well done Chris, an outstanding achievement!
