With Christmas fast approaching in Clifton Village..

BID CliftonVillage in association with Tony Miles (Smiley Miley Events) on behalf of the Independent Retailers / Businesses have installed a 50ft Nordman Fir Christmas Tree in The Mall Gardens.

This year the Christmas Tree will be called FLORENCE, ‘THE NHS TREE OF THANKS’
and will be decorated with STARS to say thank you to the NHS staff in Bristol.
We have now launched


We are asking people to
buy a STAR for Florence
for a £25 minimum donation.
To sign and personalise a STAR.
The money raised will be split between the 2 hospitals in Bristol ( BRI and Southmead) to help support the staff Wellbeing Charity fund.

Numerous businesses are selling the STARS. They will have blue stickers on their shop windows and a hanging blue star.

Those people who have purchased a NHS STAR can write a personalise message on a STAR with a water proof pen which will then be placed on the tree.

The buying of STARS will now be extended due to the 2nd Lockdown. They will be available to buy up until Christmas and then placed on the tree.

The STARS will be on the tree throughout the Christmas festive season. We hope visitors will come and view Clifton Village magnificent Illuminated Christmas Tree with NHS THANK YOU STARS hanging proudly.

Buyers of the STARS which are individually numbered will be entered into a draw to win prizes which will be drawn before Christmas.

There are 8 prizes in total .

Thank you to the businesses for their kind donated draw prizes:
John Titcombe – Bespoke Sapphire Diamond Heart Shaped Ring
