The Money Tree.
I expect some of you will remember my visit to this lovely festival last year, last week I went to see this years festival, which was equally as lovely as last years. This year the Church has had a lot of work done on it, generally cleaned up and ramps have been put in to allow wheelchair visitors to access all of the Church. The renovations have been beautifully done, and once again the Church made a wonderful, if very cold setting for the numerous decorated trees.

The inventiveness of some of the tree ‘dressers’ is always amusing to see, this year it ranged from a ‘money’ tree, to a sunflower tree, but all the trees were beautifully decorated. There are 3 categories, which you are invited to vote for your favourite tree, It is a very hard task, as a lot of work has gone into each one.
The funds raised for entry to the exhibition will go towards more work that still needs to be done to this beautiful church. Heating I know is high on the list, and much needed, but there are also plans to to incorporate a kitchen and a bathroom facilities. The church has a large group of ‘friends’ who work tirelessly to raise funds for the various projects, and it is good to know that any money raised goes to a good cause.
