Christmas Tree Festival - St Alban's Church

Christmas Tree Festival - St Alban's Church

The church community have decided that, this year, we are going to host a Christmas Tree festival for the first time here at All Saints Church Heath; and we are writing to you to ask if you would like to be involved and display a Christmas tree.

There is no charge to participate; you will just need to provide your own Christmas tree and decorations; and put it up before the event, and remove them the day after the event.

The aim is to invite and involve local organisations and businesses, and to experience a sense of community at this special time of year. This year we are also intending to support two charities; Bluebell Wood children's hospice and Helen's Trust.

As I have already mentioned, there will not be any charge to display a Christmas tree. However, any donations that are left by visitors will be split equally and sent to the two charities.

The Christmas Tree festival will run for five days starting on Thursday 28 November and ending on Monday 2 December. The church will be open from 11am until 6pm on each of the five days and there will be members of the church and the local community on site during the period when the church is open for visitors.

It is a good opportunity to raise awareness of your business or organisation and we will be happy to prepare a laminated sign with the name of your organisation to stand in front of your tree. So that we are able to get things organised, it would be helpful if you could let me know of your interest no later than 26 October.

Once you have contacted me I can send out additional information, and a form for you to complete with more details. We only have a small church and space is limited, so space will be allocated on a first come-first served basis. I look forward to hearing from you if you are interested in being involved or if you would like more information or clarification. Please don't hesitate to contact me.

My contact details are: Mark Szadura
