Completed Brick Christmas tree lit by nearly 2000 candles

Construction Students Unveil Annual Christmas Tree Project

19 December 2017

North Notts College Construction department unveiled their annual Christmas tree today, a creation made entirely from bricks.

The brick tree, which was built by students of all different levels at the College, is the department’s biggest yet and was lit by nearly 2000 tea light candles.

To mark the occasion, children from North Wheatley Junior School Choir performed a range of festive songs including Oh Come All Ye Faithful, Do They Know It’s Christmas? and Jingle Bells to an audience of College students, staff and younger children from the College’s Early Learners’ Centre.

John Connolly, Chief Executive of the RNN Group, which includes North Notts College, congratulated the Construction team, saying “the Christmas tree has become a tradition at our College and it gets bigger and better every year. Thank you to all of the students who have put a lot of time and effort in making this magnificent tree, and to Wheatley Junior School Choir for putting on a wonderful performance for us all.”

Goodie bags were then given to the children, including hats and mugs from MKM Building Supplies, a local company that has worked with the College on numerous projects in the community.
