Festival in 2012
Trees displayed by:
Our eighth Festival was held in December 2012 and it was magnificent! We had another fantastic response to our invitations and had a staggering 124 decorated trees in the Church (again 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 Claire Carter, BBC Radio Gloucestershire presenter, to switch on the lights with the help of some of the children present.
