Tree of Hope

TREE OF HOPE

After so many losses in 2020 – loss of life, cancellation of events and celebrations, Mossvale wanted to create a beacon of hope that could be seen and appreciated by everyone living or passing through the North of Paisley. And so our beautiful plum tree has been repurposed as a Tree of Hope. This sculpture of nature and light combined will change in appearance through the seasons, with springtime blossoms, leaves and fruit, through to winter again, providing a comforting radiant glow.  The tree reminds us that during dark or stormy times there is light, and there is hope.

Many thanks to everyone who attended Doors Open Day and the Tree of Hope Lighting Ceremony!  We will be creating a special video of the event - email us if you have video or photo footage that we could possibly include.
