Three Christmas trees in Bangor over the festive period have had a positive impact on the city, despite vandalism which damaged the lights on one of the trees.

The Christmas trees in Bangor have also had a good response on social media, especially with the return of a tree to the city centre near the clock.

People Have No Respect

Ian Jones, clerk for Bangor City Council, said lights on one of the city’s three trees were vandalised about two weeks ago.

He said: “People have no respect. It’s for the enjoyment of the whole community and a few people destroy the enjoyment of many.”

But despite some upset and acts of vandalism, Ian Jones believes the trees have a positive impact on communities.

“It’s all about the ambience and mood and gets children excited for the big day,” he said.
