Crib Fest

ORGANISERS of the annual nativity crib festival in Chipping Sodbury have appealed for exhibits to join those already promised.
It is expected there will be more than 150 cribs on display in St John’s Church during the event, which runs from November 30 to December 4.
They will come from all around the world, from many different cultures and will be made from a variety of materials.
Local schoolchildren will also have their own exhibits on show and the organising team will include workshops and storytelling in the five-day free festival.
Meanwhile, the donkeys that played a starring role last year are set to return on two of the days.
Event organiser Liz Gregson said: “They were very well behaved and loved the attention.’’ Anyone who would like to lend a crib to the church should either email Mrs Gregson at woodchip@waitrose.com or visit office@svbcofe.org.uk to get more information.
