Christmas Tree Festival - 11/12/18/19 Dec 2010
All Saints Church, Nocton is holding a ‘Christmas Tree Festival’ over the weekends of the 11/12th and 18/19th December 2010.
We are looking for organisations in our local communities, to sponsor a tree and to decorate it in a theme that represents their activities, giving visitors a flavour of Christmas and of the variety of organisations in our locale.
Trees and lighting will be provided, so your task is to setup and decorate the tree probably during the days of Thursday 9th and Friday 10th of December.
The event will be advertised widely in the local press and on the radio, giving all participants a way of promoting themselves. We would therefore like participating organisations to prepare some sort of display to go with their tree to give information about themselves. This may consist of photographs and/ or some printed materials.
We are looking for around twelve organisations to sponsor a tree.
All profits from the event are going to be split, with half going to our church roof restoration and the other half being donated to the Dunston Silver Sounds Brass Band, to support their work and the opportunities they give to young players. The Dunston Band will be performing on Saturday 11th 1.30-3pm, and Sunday 19th 1.30-3pm, bringing a real Christmas feel to the festival.
The church will be organising refreshments: coffees, teas, mince pies, plum loaf, mulled wine etc, which will be on sale throughout the day.
We hope you would be interested in taking part in the event, which we feel is a superb community event for the forthcoming Christmas season.
As time is short I would appreciate it if you could let me know before Friday 12th of November as to whether you would be willing to take part. For any further information please phone or email me.
