Christmas festival seeks tree decorators
The St Mary’s Tree Festival is looking for people to become a sponsor of one of its 50 Christmas trees and decorate them ready for display.
This year’s theme is, ‘A song for Christmas’. It’s hoping that schools, clubs and local children will get involved in the popular event.
The festival features a mixture of decorated trees and craft activities for children, with singers, musicians and dancers from the local community providing musical interludes. There are also two evening concerts. It aims to involve a wide range of people from local organisations and businesses.
The Festival is open from Saturday 8 until Sunday 16 December. For more information on how to sponsor one of the trees contact the parish office on 01454 313105. Full details about the event will be available nearer the time at www.yateparish.org
