HEAD FOR HEIGHTS: John Baxter installs the Christmas lights atop a tree near the Timaru RSA.

In a familiar sign of the season, John Baxter situated the star atop the Christmas tree near the Timaru RSA in Wai-Iti Rd this morning.

The star rests on a pole and is lifted into place by a crane, but must be manually released and bolted into place.
