Christmas Tree Festival To Go Ahead

2 Oct 2020, 11:45 a.m.

After much thought and discussion we’ve agreed that it will be lovely for

us all to come together and to have a Christmas Tree Festival to look forward to.

Due to the ever-changing Covid-19 regulations we are working on

3 possibilities for holding the festival, in order of preference:-

1. Trees in church, decorated at agreed socially distanced times with

church open for visitors possibly for longer hours i.e. during the week as

well as the weekends to reduce numbers in the church at any one time.

2. Trees decorated and filmed in your home (you could send in your

own video clip or we can film for you with necessary precautions taken).

All clips would be uploaded to form a virtual festival. This would have the

potential for a wider (worldwide?!) audience.

3. A virtual Christmas tree decorating scheme, where there would be a

tree which anyone could add a decoration to for a donation.

Please watch this space for details on the final format of the festival which will take place on the last weekend in November and the first weekend in December.
