The smell of fresh cut pine trees is once again filling Warkworth fire and ambulance stations, as the volunteer fire brigade and St John crews begin their annual Christmas tree fundraisers.
Trees of all shapes and sizes will be available from both stations from now until supplies run out.
Warkworth Fire Station on Church Hill will be open from noon until 6pm, Monday to Thursday, and from 9am to 6pm on Fridays and weekends. Prices start at $30 and trees can be wrapped for easy transportation for an extra $5. The brigade can also take special orders for extra large trees – call Gaye on 0274 599613.
Warkworth St John, off Whitaker Road, will be open for sales from 10am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, and 9am to 6pm at weekends. Prices there start at $35 and extra large trees can be ordered by calling in at the station during open hours, though organisers warn that these need to be ordered as soon as possible, as they tend to sell out quickly.
