Reasons for trip

The Rotary Club have held a Festival of Christmas Trees in my local church since 2004 – apart from last year when Christmas got ‘cancelled’… As well as bringing joy and light at a dull, dark and cold time of year, it is also a main fund raiser for the local Hospice, and is also raising money for Macmillan as well this year.

This year Christmas is back on the calendar and the Festival is in full swing. It may not be as big as in previous years, but the enthusiasm is there and there were nearly 50 brightly decorated trees. The trees are great fun and there is everything from the traditionally decorated tree to a Christmas Tree made out of books and even one of balloons.

Several primary schools decorate trees and these are great fun with hand made decorations – they may look amateur, but all have been made with enthusiasm and love. I loved the sheep on one tree made from shaggy white pompoms with a black felt face stuck on. I always come back inspired with new ideas.

There is a tombola and other games as well as refreshments which have home made cakes. There is also a stall selling very good homemade jams and cakes…
