2017 was a first for All Saints’ as they put on their first Christmas Tree Festival. The idea was to draw in many organisations, schools and individuals from the parish to help to decorate the church. The response was great and and the church looked fantastic throughout the festive period. Everyone who took part was so creative in their interpretation and every tree was actually a winner! During the weekend the committee served refreshments and there were stalls selling festive food. There was a fantastic hamper raffle and all visitors were invited to vote for their favourite trees, while the younger ones were challenged to look for 12 wooden mice which were hidden in the trees. The main aim of the weekend was not to be a fundraiser but the final result was actually over £2200. Many thanks to everyone who took part, helped or visited during the weekend. We are hoping to run another similar event and include even more organisations next time!
