 Festival continues

Saturday 10th and 16th 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.    

Sunday 11th and 17th 12.p.m. - 6 p.m.

The decorating  of the trees was a very happy time, and the biting wind that blew across the church yard was not reflected inside. Everyone coming in and decorating “their” tree while others were sorting the different items that are around the church from the bell the angels, trumpets etc. We were also able to display the beautiful nativity set that we were given earlier in the year by Radford and Halbrook Methodist Church. We put the Holy family with the lambs on the font with the three kings traveling from the east end of the church in one of the chancel windows.  

 

We will be leaving these figures display in the church during Epiphany and once the trees have been cleared the kings will be moved nearer the font. The church have donated £50 to the Radford and Halbrook Methodist Church for their Christmas Charity as they would not accept anything for themselves.

 

Unlike the Flower Festival this year, when the sun shone and it was lovely and warm, for the Tree Festival it has been very different. The first weekend it was very damp and drizzly and the second weekend saw snow and ice!

 

However despite the  weather it was well worth the work, and everyone who has commented have said how much they have enjoyed their visit. At the time of writing the number of visitors are down on previous years, but considering the weather they have been very good.
