THANK you very much for the support you gave us in the lead-up to the Christmas Tree Festival over the first weekend of December. Despite the snow, wind and rain, it was a huge success and we raised more than £2,000, which will be divided evenly between Tearfund and Acorn Pregnancy Counselling Centre.

Hundreds of people came to enjoy the trees over the weekend and visited the Winter Wonderland Christmas Market on the Saturday.

Visitors voted Davison Day Nursery’s tree as their favourite, and they will receive the £100 cash prize.

It was a fantastic weekend and thank you for your support.
