Christmas Tree Festival St Mary’s Caynham

At the sixth Christmas Tree Festival in St Mary’s Church Caynham, Pantomimes proved to be a popular theme, with fourteen decorated trees. From Aladdin to Snow White, so many imaginative ideas were on display. A large tree was also laden with all seventy eight gifts listed in the Twelve Days of Christmas, to-gether with information about the symbolism of the song. The church was filled with the scents, sounds and sights of Christmas, as visitors enjoyed seasonal refreshments, singing carols with Little Hereford Choir and browsing at the stalls laden with good things. On the Sunday, a Christingle service completed a memorable weekend.

Funds raised were for St Mary’s Church and thanks go to all the villagers who worked so hard and all the visitors who supported the event. Here’s a date for your diary. 1st and 2nd December 2108, for the 7th Caynham Christmas Tree Festival.
