ORGANISERS of the annual crib festival held in St John’s Church, Chipping Sodbury, have been inundated with inquiries ahead of this year’s pre-Christmas event.

They said there had been a big response to an appeal for nativity cribs to be donated or loaned for the festival, which takes place from December 2-6.

Spokeswoman Liz Gregson said: “This year’s theme is Follow the Star and we are greatly encouraged by the response so far.

“However, we need as many people as possible to contact us to pledge cribs prior to December to enable us to assess numbers for the display.”

Anyone wishing to donate a crib should contact Michelle Jenkins at the Sodbury Vale Benefice Office by emailing office@svbcofe.org.uk or phoning 01454 325160.
