Woolton Village Traders Association

Woolton Village Traders Association was formed in 1982 by founder and chairman, Dave Threlfall Snr, owner of Kards & Kandies, 5-7 Allerton Road, to bring together the shopkeepers to improve trade in the village. 

One of Dave's first ideas was for a Village Christmas Tree, which, originally, was located outside of his shop for several days, but, it was agreed that an even bigger tree would be much more impressive! He mentioned the idea to his golfing friend who thought it an excellent idea and agreed to donate a 40-foot Christmas tree, and 28 small trees for the shops. Adorned with garlands and lights the Village Christmas Tree, relocated to the Rev. Leicester street lamp opposite, was switched on in 1982.

Dave Threlfall Snr retired in 1999 and although the Traders Association is no longer active, they have never been formally wound up.
