Every cloud has a silver lining, it seems. The St. Andrews Christmas Tree Festival has passed through a Covid transformation and returns indoors AND outdoors, bigger than ever before. Due to Covid in 2020 we could not show the trees inside the church, as in previous years so, as a one-off alternative, villagers took trees into their own gardens all over West and East Hagbourne’s. This year, not only are we allowed back into the church but also, by popular demand, we are continuing with the village trees as well.
With your support we hope to reach over 200 trees dotted in-and-out around the villages; all in aid of the church and this year’s chosen charity, Asylum Welcome of Oxford.
The Festival events are also allowed to return and a full programme will be published here soon but highlights will include Carols in the Close, Carols in the Fleur, Musical Lunches, and the ever popular Big Wassail. There is also a raffle with some smashing prizes.
Clubs, groups, businesses and villagers are already signing up for their trees so don’t delay. See the form below and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org today.
