Guernsey's Chief Minister puts star on top of Rotary Tree of Joy

Guernsey's Chief Minister has taken a trip up in a crane to place the star on top of the Christmas centrepiece in St Peter Port.

The mast on the roundabout, dubbed the 'Rotary Tree of Joy' for the Christmas period, is lit up by streams of lights each year.

This Morning Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq had the honour of putting a star right at the top.

Despite it meaning scaling some dizzy heights, the Chief Minister wasn't fazed by the task.

The Chief Minister harnessed and ready to take a trip to the top of the tree

Speaking to ITV News when back on the ground, he said:

It was exhilerating... It was calm today, which is good, so we weren't moving around very much. But very, very quiet as well. You could see everything moving, you could see people talking... but you couldn't really hear much so it was beautiful.

– Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq, Chief Minister

The lights on this mast will be switched on this Thursday, marking the start of the Rotary's gift appeal.
