Our Christmas Tree Festival is over! It was visited by thousands of people again this year and has been a great success. The Festival team would like to thank all who were involved in whatever way – the Church teams, the Charities, all those who donated goods (Fakenham Garden Centre, Morrisons and Tesco’s in particular) and all the individual volunteers.
We had many positive comments about the lack of flashing lights, most feeling that it made the displays more peaceful and emphasised the other decorations on the trees. The small reduction in the number of trees was also seen as a benefit, as each tree could be seen more easily.
We’re still waiting for some of the charities to send us their totals, but most seem to have done as well, if not better, this year. The church’s total was just over £15,000, a little down on last year, but in today’s financial climate we are very pleased.
Next year’s dates have been agreed upon . . . Thursday 30th November to Thursday 7th December . . . and we will launch the 2017 Festival sometime before Easter. Watch this space!
Meanwhile, thank you again to all involved and Christmas greetings to you all.
