A COMMUNITY EVENT TO INVOLVE EVERYONE - COMING SOON

 

 

ENTRY FORM

A FESTIVAL OF DECORATED CHRISTMAS TREES...... Saturday the 1st December 2018

Welcome to our 9th Community Tree Festival.   If you’ve entered a tree in previous years then you already know the format, but for those who are entering for the first time, or if you’d like a reminder…                                                       There are no rules as such, except to say your entry must be a tree, or resemble a tree.  The size doesn’t matter, large or small and real or imitation, even part of a tree counts, whichever you prefer.   We have seen some spectacular trees in past years and some witty ones too; even a few twigs and they have all been great!  It is very much a fun event and is for everyone, so whether it’s for the first time or the 9th why not take part in this event and join in the fun. 

There are different categories, Individual, Group, Adult, Children, Business and any others that may come to light nearer the time.  The tree will have a name, chosen by you and a number, allocated by St. Hilda’s. The number will be used by the public when voting and prizes will be given for the trees with the most votes.    

Each category will have a winner.    

Your tree should be taken away after the festival and perhaps used to decorate a shop window, a classroom, at home,  or work place.  The fee to enter a tree in the festival is £10.00                                                                                                              The Church will be open to receive and / or decorate trees on the premises, on Thursday 29th November from 11am until 5pm and /or Friday 30th November from 11am  until 7pm.

Viewing and voting will be from 11:00am until 4:30pm on Saturday the 1st December.   Carol singing, surrounded by the trees, at 5pm and the winning trees will be announced during the carol singing.
