Tell us a little bit about you and your business
My name is Lucy Cass and I own Lingotot Darlington covering Darlington, Richmond /Catterick, Northallerton and Barnard Castle.
How did you get involved in the Darlington Borough Council Christmas Tree Trail?
A wonderful parent who attends my classes nominated us to take part on Facebook and we were very excited to get involved!
How did the children get involved / what did you ask them to do?
Each group I work with contributed by making a decoration in the session. Some coloured things in, others designed their own Xmas pictures, nursery aged children decorated stars, Xmas trees, snowmen and those doing outdoor course made ribbon trees, bead baubles etc.
What do you hope to get out of the project?
I think it's a nice way to celebrate Christmas coming with the kids, support the town and other local businesses. I hope that the children will go and find the tree and be a talking point for them with their families and siblings (Top Tip: our Lingotot tree is in Fakin It in the Cornmill next to HMV)
What else do you do in and around the local community?
We work with local schools, nurseries and community classes and have sent out free resources to help settings particularly over the lock down period including national online events.
