PUBLISHED: 17:00 18 November 2016


Combe Raleigh will hold its third Christmas tree festival at the start of next month

The popular event is on from Friday, December 2, to Sunday, December 4.

The festival, based at St Nicholas’ Church, is open from noon to 6pm each day.

Combe Raleigh churchwarden and festival organiser Rosemary Mapleston said: “The church will be well worth a visit to view the variety of decorated trees on display.

“Four years ago, the village held its first festival of this kind and the church was full of beautifully adorned trees, bright with various ornaments and twinkling lights.

“This year a memory tree will be included in the display. There will also be the opportunity to purchase crafts, Christmas wreaths, poinsettias, cyclamens and as-new books.”

The entry charge of £3 (children free) will include light refreshments of hot drinks and mince pies.

There will be around 15 to 20 Christmas trees on display at the festival.
