The West Haddon Christmas Tree Festival will be held again this year from Friday November 29 until Friday December 6.

The festival is a chance for families, individuals, organisations and local businesses to decorate a Christmas tree to say something about them and display them in the village church for judging. Trees need to be decorated on Thursday November 28 from 12pm until 8pm.

There will be a £5 charge for participants to cover the cost of heating the church.

At 5pm on Sunday December 1 carols will be sung in the church and the decorated tree will be enjoyed as night falls. Visitors to the church will vote for their favourite tree with small prizes on offer. The festival has been organised to coinside with the Wassailing evening on Friday November 29 from 6pm until 9pm.
