Chapel’s Christmas present from Dalkeith Country Park

Rosslyn Chapel Trust is one of three local organisations to receive an early Christmas present from Dalkeith Country Park.

The Chapel, Woodburn Primary School and St Nicholas Buccleuch Church each received a Nordmann Fir tree from the pop-up Christmas tree shop at Restoration Yard.

Julie Merrilees, Visitor Services Manager at Dalkeith Country Park, said: “We were delighted to be able to donate the Christmas trees to help bring some extra festive cheer to local organisations. We were especially proud to see how amazing our tree looked in the beautiful setting of the iconic Rosslyn Chapel. We’d like to thank everyone who got in touch to enquire about a donation this year. Anyone wishing to enjoy one of our lovely trees in their own home can visit our pop-up shop.”

Ian Gardner, Director of Rosslyn Chapel Trust said: “The tree looks spectacular in the chapel now that it is adorned with an array of festive decorations. We always receive lots of compliments for our Christmas tree and I am sure this year will be no different. The Chapel is open to visitors all month and, as it is still a working church, Christmas is a very special time here. We’d like to thank the team at Dalkeith Country Park for their very kind donation.”

Details of events at the Chapel and opening times over Christmas and New Year are available here.

The pop-up shop is stocking five, six and seven foot Nordmann Fir trees which were grown in Stirling. It’s open every weekend in December and from 16th December through to 24th December. Restoration Yard Store, Café, Wellbeing Lab and Fort Douglas continues to be open seven days a week for Christmas shopping, lunching and playing.
