We would like to thank everyone for their support during our Festival of Decorated Christmas Trees, it was very much appreciated, by all at St Hilda's.  

The number of people, who came on the day, has to be a record, but even more important, everyone seemed to have fun and enjoyed the display of trees. There was something for all age groups... Paddington Bear, Treedledum & Treedledee and even Snow White & the 7 dwarf trees, these were particular favourites with the children, as was the tree filled with quality street chocolates, the children were invited to help themselves to the sweets... a clever tactic!

On arrival our visitors were given a programme, a small glass of ginger wine and the all-important voting slip. There were 40 trees to look at and appreciate; choosing three was not an easy task.  Every tree was different; some took two minutes to set up, others weeks to prepare, but all were amazing. 

The Festival ended with a Carol Service, during which the winning trees were announced, surrounded by the spectacular trees. 

A short while later at 7:30pm The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers performed their Christmas Concert at St. Hilda's, they too were amazing… WHAT A DAY!
