The Christmas trees and all the decorations in the Church have now been cleared away, hopefully we will have more trees next Christmas.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped to erect and decorate the 26 large trees, run all the Christmas stalls and do all the catering, and finally removing the trees and cleaning up the church.
Also a special thanks to all the people and organisations that sponsored the trees
The two day Christmas tree festival was again a huge success with approximately 500 attending the celebration. Many thanks to the pupils of Farnborough Road Infant and Junior Schools for switching on the lights and providing excellent entertainment during the festival. Also thanks for the brilliant performances provided by the Talent Factory’s young singers.
