THE Friends of St Mary’s Church, Whittlesey are busy preparing for this year’s Christmas Tree Festival. This annual event has become a firm fixture since our first in 1998. The date for this year’s festival is Friday December 10 to Sunday December 12. We open daily at 10am and then close at 8pm on the Friday to work alongside Whittlesey Business Forum’s Christmas Extravaganza. Saturday & Sunday we close at 5pm. On the Sunday at 6pm we have a rousing Carol Service, following which we serve mulled wine and mince pies to get everyone in the festive spirit.
All parts of the community take part in this wonderful festival: the local schools; Women’s Institutes; local clubs; businesses and families. To enter a tree you can download a form from our website: www.friendsofstmary.co.uk or pop into Wrights of Whittlesey on Market Street in Whittlesey. The only charge is your personal cost of providing the tree and decorations.
For the duration of the festival we charge the public �2 per 16yrs+ and �1 for 5-16 years. All monies raised go to the continued upkeep of St Mary’s mediaeval building.
The trees take all kinds of shape from traditional to quirky, but the church looks superb filled with beautiful trees, upon which hours have been lavished making the decorations. We also have a Tree of Remembrance, just a bare tree and a basket of tags for you to write a special message to a loved one who has died.
