The Halo has been installed to strengthen and support our beautiful Inverclyde Tree of Tranquillity
The ‘Halo’ is a bespoke handmade circle of steel specially designed to encircle the Inverclyde Tree of Tranquillity to protect, raise awareness, and enhance the Tree of Tranquility site. We would like to say a huge thank you to Inverclyde Council for funding the halo with support from McGills Buses, Amazon, and the Co-op Gourock Shore Street, Gourock Cardwell Road & Greenock Eldon Street.
