TREE: It’s the work of fell runner

In response to the Picture of the Week, (Northumberland Gazette, December 17), the Christmas tree at Dove Crag, Rothbury, is put up and decorated annually by local builder and long-distance fell runner Paul Appleby, with the help of some of his running buddies.

He takes time to do this each year when setting the route for the Simonside Cairns Fell Race. No other group is responsible.
