A NEW festival featuring a collection of Christmas trees was so successful that organisers are planning to repeat the event.

The first festival, held in December 2016, was a hit with visitors to St Mary’s Church in Yate, which can accommodate up to 50 small potted trees.

The aim is to get businesses, schools, clubs and individuals to sponsor and decorate a tree, with the money raised going towards roof repairs at the church.

Dates for the event are the weekends of December 8 and 16, with musical entertainment, comedy from Mark Palmer and craft activities for children also arranged.

Anyone interested in being a sponsor should email parishoffice@yateparish.org.uk or call 01454 313105.
