The Friends' Christmas Tree is part of All Saints' Church Christmas Tree Festival

All Saints’ Church Christmas Tree Festival in Millbrook is looking really super this year. The Festival is open:

Wednesday 12 December, 2pm – 5pm
Thursday 13 Dcember, 2pm – 5pm
Friday 14 December, 2pm – 5pm
Saturday 15 December, 10am – 12noon

This year the Friends’ Christmas Tree has paper origami decorations inspired by one of the books we came across when emptying the Lodge. We also discovered some rather out of date French maps which gave us the idea for the paper chains.

Please do pop along and support this event at All Saints’ Church in Millbrook.
Free entrance. Donations welcomed.
