Christmas Tree Festival at St Mary's Church


This event is running through Advent from Sun 3rd to Wed 27th December. 

There are now over 35 trees in St Mary's and we would love you to come and have a look at them.

They have been created by various organisations, clubs and homes around the village , to show the 'essence' of each participant.

So the Litter Pickers tree has a star made of discarded sweet wrappers: the Young Farmers tree is constructed out of electric fence posts and binder twine!

Come and see for yourselves.

People have been so creative and imaginative.

The trees will remain in church until  just after Christmas,  and removed on Dec 28th and 29th, so you still have plenty of time!
