Congratulations to Sue Short and her team for having created yet another wonderful Christmas display at the Church - a worthy follow-up to last year's Angel Festival.

Congratulations, too, to all the village groups which have created their own Christmas trees and have shown great originality and creativity.

Make sure you visit the Church (using the back entrance) to see this wonderful and inspiring display. It will bring Christmas  a lot nearer.

While making your visit be sure to enter a competition to try to identify the clubs and organisations which have created each tree. There's a prize for the person who gets the most right answers.
