Working for Wye - past, present and future

Wye Christmas Tree Festival opened today

The Christmas Tree Festival in Wye church attracted hundreds of visitors

Thirty village groups and societies, individuals and families, schools, businesses, voluntary groups and the Parish Council have decorated thirty Christmas trees. The fascinating display in Wye parish church attracted hundreds of visitors within the first few hours. Visitors enjoyed the creative and humorous decorations, and fortified themselves with seasonal refreshments of mulled wine and mince pies. The Festival will re-open on Saturday 7th December between 10.00 and 17.00 and again on Sunday 8th December between 11.00 and 16.00.

The organisers planned the first Christmas Tree Festival since 2008 to coincide with Wye's annual Christmas Street Party 6th December. The trees will remain on display over the weekend. Visitors can vote for their favourite decorated tree, if they buy a programme for £2.00 on the day. Coffee and tea is available in the church and there are gift stalls, and a raffle for a beautiful handmade quilt. Thanks to Perry Court Farm for supplying all thirty trees in the church, and the village tree in Bridge Street. All proceeds from the Festival are in aid of church funds.
