A HAMPSHIRE farm is re-launching its borrow a tree scheme to boost sustainability this Christmas.

Headlands Farm, in West Wellow, has hosted its Christmas tree experience for 27 years but this is only the second year it is giving customers the option to borrow a tree.

Families can come and choose a tree, take it home, keep it watered and loved and then return it in January.

Customers can also opt to cut their own tree or choose one of the business’s pre-cut ones and Santa’s helpers will be on hand to help carry and load them into cars.

Children will also be able to ride on Santa’s Sleigh and climb and explore the winter woodland play area.

Alex and Alex Bennett, owners of Headlands Farm, said: “For every tree cut we then replace it with at least two others.  We have spent this year looking after last year’s rentable trees so they are ready to go and enjoy another festive period with their families. 

“Last year families named their trees and we loved seeing them come back to the farm with names such as Twinkle, Rudolf, Crimble and Gary.”
