Summer has barely arrived and here we are thinking about Christmas!
The 2017 Christmas Tree Festival is planned to be held at Ss Philip & James between Friday 8th and Sunday 10th December.
We have to start planning the event early, as many schools and other organisations who exhibit have to get the dates into their diaries before the start of the Autumn Term or even before the end of the Summer Term. If you would like to help with the event please get in touch with Brian Biffin on firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 616692.
If you haven’t been to the Festival before, the event is held every two years. You are invited to enter a Christmas tree for your school, community group, business, family, or just as an individual. Watch the parish website over the summer for details of how to enter. We typically get over 30 trees, which are exhibited around the Church. There will be a small prize for the best tree in each class and the best overall.
Visitors to the Festival will be charged a modest entrance fee and the proceeds will be split between local charities.
