Festival in 2011
Trees displayed by:

Our seventh Festival was held in December 2011 and if it can be said yet again, it was the best yet! We had another fantastic response to our invitations and had a staggering 108 decorated trees in the Church (a new record for us!), some were displayed at pew height and the rest at floor level. We were of course very grateful to all who brought and decorated a tree.

At the start of the event, we invited Chris Baxter, BBC Radio Gloucestershire presenter, to switch on the lights together with his wife and two children. A great time was had by all.
