As reported on the BBC today:
Residents of Rochford in Essex came to the rescue of the organisers of the town’s festive lights switch-on when the Christmas tree was felled overnight by vandals.
District Council chairman Heather Glynn said she was proud of the way the town’s community spirit shone through.
The festive light celebration organiser Pete Tobit said: “It was great that so many people pitched up to help us restore the tree and for them to show such a strong community spirit.”
