At Preston Road Community Centre, we had three Christmas trees, one in the large hall, one in the hallway and one in the lounge. There were also foil ceiling decorations in three of the rooms.
Today was the time to take them all down and store them away. As I wound the long string of lights, I wondered about leaving instructions for unwinding. One wrong move and they can get into such a tangle.
The rooms have returned to a simpler state for the next eleven months.
