    Here's Joe's winning tree. it really is a nice one and I have learnt my lesson not to try and compete with it ::) . it stands 10m tall I think.

    Congrats again Joe. Excellent job for a tree that this time last year was 70% submerged in Flood water

    There must be something wrong with me. I'm just sitting here staring at the pic and working out how to do that tree and how much further away my display would be seen.

    Great looking tree by the way Joe. Glad you got up and running again this year.

    Congratulations Joe for a magnificant tree again. Diserves the prize.
    Congratulations also to Steve for your award.
    I have not managed to get away to see many other displays this year - are either of you continuing after Christmas? (Mine will be running to New Year Eve.)

    Congratulations again - Geoff

    now now Steve dont be jealous

    Kel the star is 3D and stands about 1m tall it is welded out of 6mm steel rod (4mm would be plenty thick enough it was my first welding job 6 years ago so i was not sure how think the steel should be), with yellow/orange rope light zip tied to it. hope it gives you enough info if not feel free to ask more
