“It promises to be an epic time in Dockyard this holiday season and we cannot wait to celebrate it with the community and our off-island visitors,” said Stephanie Rodill, the Marketing and Events Manager, at West End Development Corporation. “Everyone will find something to enjoy.”

The annual Festival of Trees, where people can help schools win monetary donations, has now started with voting open until December 7.

Each school was given a tree to decorate in the Clocktower Mall, spread out over the upper and lower levels in the theme of Christmas.

The school/tree that receives the most votes will win a cash donation of $2,500, second place will receive $1,500, third $1,000, fourth and fifth will receive $500 while the five remaining honorable mentions will receive $250.

“We are encouraging the public to come out and view all the hard work that our primary and middle schoolers put into this competition,” said Ms. Rodill.

“We are extremely pleased to have West End Primary, Bermuda Institute, Warwick Academy, Heron Bay Primary, Mount Saint Agnes Academy, Purvis Primary, Port Royal Primary, Whitney Institute, Paget Primary and St. David’s Primary participate this year and we look forward to seeing the creativity of their students.”
