St Hilda’s Church Christmas Tree Festival December 2021

We held a Christmas Tree Festival on 3rd, 4th & 5th December. We had 15 trees decorated by groups from Church and the Community – a cheese & wine opening evening with entertainment by the Cowcliffe Community Singers – a coffee morning/craft fayre.

We were open on Saturday and Sunday for the trees to be viewed with 2 Children’s activities and refreshments available.

We raised £965.61 for Church funds

A HUGE THANK YOU to all involved – people gave freely their time, effort and money and without such enthusiastic commitment the event would not have been so successful

Wednesday, Thursday & Friday were spent getting ready
