Enham Trust Opens Christmas Tree Field to Public This Weekend

Enham Trust in Enham Alamein will open its 26,000 strong Nordmann tree field to the public to pick and purchase their Christmas tree this coming weekend, on Saturday 5 th and Sunday 6 th December from 10am until 3pm.

To mark the occasion, Enham’s Sadie Iveson and Kerrie Morley got into the festive spirit and took on Elf duty ensuring the trees were spruced up and ready for picking.

All proceeds will go to supporting disabled people to live, work and enjoy life through the charitable work of Enham Trust, providing supportive and accessible environments for people to live, personalised care promoting independence and access to activities, education and employment, resulting in self-fulfilment and achievement. When you’re done with the tree, you can return it to Enham Trust who will recycle this into mulch for their gardens.

Visitors are advised to wear sensible footwear and adhere to distancing guidelines. Parking is available on-site at Enham Trust’s main site in Enham Alamein. Due to limited signal in the field, cash is required for a purchase, so please bring the correct change if possible.

When: Saturday 5 th and Sunday 6 th December 10.00am – 3.00pm Tree Prices: 3-4ft: £25 / 4-5ft £35 / 5-6ft £45

Enham Trust Head of Gardening and Domestics Nigel Sully said: “We’re thrilled to be able to open up our field to the general public and help bring some Christmas cheer into homes at the end of an incredibly challenging year. We have confidence in our COVID secure measures and the proceeds from all tree sales go to helping us fulfil our mission of enabling disabled people to live, work and enjoy life by continuing to provide our services to the thousands we are honoured to support every day.”

  • Children should always be supervised
  • Visitor numbers will be monitored, and a queuing system implemented if required
  • Always adhere to social distancing signs
  • Use the hand sanitizer provided around the field
