Our Christmas Tree Festival

We’ve had a wonderful weekend celebrating our 4th Christmas Tree Festival, including our new Craft & Gift Fair on Saturday.  Thank you to all those who have worked so hard to make it all such a success.

Firstly, to all our tree sponsors and decorators, and to those who created the gallery scene of London’s skyline complete with helicopter.  They did an outstanding job of transforming the church this week, and they’ve all been so imaginative and creative.  Again this year we were joined by some of those who hire our premises week by week, and by a number of local organisations, so there was a wonderful community spirit.

Thanks also go to those who delivered flyers, and to those who did the work of setting up the trees, to our welcomers who nobly shivered in the porch for the cause!  And to those who provided our music, a very big ‘thank you’.

Those of us who heard Ali Wade speak about the work of London’s Air Ambulance were greatly inspired, and our thanks go to her for that, for returning to decorate their tree, and it was lovely to see her again at our “Carols Among the Trees”.  We have been very well supported by London’s Air Ambulance, our Festival charity.
