The 17th Christmas Tree Festival 2017
Planning for the 2017 Christmas Tree Festival is already underway, and arrangements for the Launch are well in hand.
As before, we are asking charities to collect their registration packs from us. For most we hope that this will be at the Launch Meeting on Monday 3rd April at 7pm in the Parish Church. This enables new charities – and new organisers of ‘old’ charities – to view the site of the Festival and to meet the Festival Team. It also allows the Team to describe and explain any new changes for the benefit of old friends. However the format of this Launch Meeting will be slightly different to previous years (we do listen to feedback!) and so we encourage all interested parties to attend if at all possible.
If you are a charity interested in having a tree at the 2017 Festival and cannot attend the meeting on 3rd April, please come and find the Festival Desk in church on Thursday mornings (11am – 12noon) from 6th April, where one of the Team will be available to discuss your application, explain the process, and provide the necessary forms.
The deadline for applications is again the 1st June and successful charities will be notified by 30th June.
If you have any queries please email email@example.com (subject matter CTF please) or ring Alison on 01328 864685
Last year the 50+ groups collected over £17,000 – an average of over £300 each, as well as raising the profile of their charity. We do hope you will join us this year and help us to continue the success of the Fakenham Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival.
