Discarded Christmas trees heading to Newbury bonfire

WEST NEWBURY — Residents looking to get rid of their used Christmas tree can dump it in a bin set up near the Highway Barn on Pipestave Hill. The bin is located on the side of an access road in that area, so trees may be dumped at any time during the day or night.

The discarded trees will be taken to Newbury for the annual bonfire there on Jan. 12. The last day to donate trees for the bonfire is Jan. 9.

Held at the Tendercrop Farm Growing Fields, 71 High St., and the Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm, 5 Littles Lane in Newbury, the bonfire is a fundraiser for the Newbury Fire Department.

Held from 3 to 9 p.m., the event also features family activities like a treasure hunt, Christmas tree toss, house tours, raffles with prizes and skating and sledding, weather permitting. Refreshments for sale will include pizza, burgers, hot dogs, sausages, subs, chili, corn chowder, fried dough, apple crisps, marshmallows, beer, wine, coffee, hot cider, and cocoa.

Parking is $5.
