Festival in 2013
Trees displayed by:
Our ninth Festival was held in December 2013 and it was magnificent! We had another fantastic response to our invitations and had a staggering 124 decorated trees in the Church, 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, and introducing Jack Miles - a new recruit to the BBC Gloucestershire Breakfast show to switch on the lights together with the help of Chris's children. A great time was had by all!
