Raising funds for both St Francis of Assisi Church, where the 12th annual St Francis Christmas Tree Festival is being held, and 1st WGC Scout Group, the trees will be available for purchase in a silent auction.

A competition is being run alongside the event, which will see the fanciest fur being donated to the QE2 Hospital.

The festival is runs on both Saturday, from noon to 6pm, and Sunday, from 1pm until 6pm.

There will be a range of activities keeping the little ones, and the older ones, busy including a Santa’s grotto, a tombola, a raffle, children’s games and entertainment, as well as a selection of stalls offering homemade cakes and bargain books.

Ample refreshments will be on offer from hot and cold foods, mulled wine, mince pies, cakes and other beverages.

Admission is £2.50 for adults, free for children.

Additionally to get everyone in the spirit of things the church’s choir will be in the Howard Centre on Saturday morning from 10am to 11am.
