MARCH St Peter’s Church raised more than £2,500 for its roof appeal thanks to the success of last weekend’s Christmas Tree Festival.

It was the ninth annual festival and included 76 trees on display, each decorated by individuals, businesses, organisations and schools.

The tree produced by ‘Breathe Easy’ called ‘twas the night before Christmas’ was voted the favourite adult tree.

While Westwood Junior school won the favourite children’s tree with ‘Helping hands at Christmas’

On the Sunday afternoon the Christingle service was enjoyed among the trees and in the evening a concert was held by the concert singers.
