Would you like to decorate a tree for the Christmas Tree festival at St. George’s this year?
We invite friends, families, schools, organisations, Church Hall users, businesses in the town and those who are in sympathy with the restoration of this beautiful church to exhibit a small decorated tree in the FIFTEENTH CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL and make it the best ever.
We feel that a real tree of 3 to 4 feet in height would be suitable. We are able to supply stands and if you would like us to order a tree for you please indicate on your response, the price is £23. In previous years visitors have commented on the lovely scent as well as the magical sight which greeted them as they entered the church.
Suggestions for decoration include Christmas Carol or song, a colour theme or something specifically connected with the exhibitor. We have an electrical supply. For businesses this is an inexpensive way to advertise and also to support the church.
Setting up will take place on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th December between 2 – 5pm and the Festival will be open to visitors from 9th – 18th December. Opening times are 2 – 5pm on each day.
Trees remain the property of the exhibitor but most people are happy to leave them in the church throughout the Christmas period. If you want to remove your tree would you tell us so that we can arrange a time.
There will be a small prize for the favourite tree chosen by visitors.
To apply to have a tree in the festival, please download complete and return the form below with a cheque for £23 by Saturday 26th November.
