QUEENSBURY CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL

                                                                            

 

To be held at Holy Trinity Parish Church on

8th and 9th December 2018

The Queensbury Christmas Tree Festival has been held several times over the last few years and has been a very popular community event, enjoyed by adults and children alike.  In the past we have had some wonderful trees and Christmas displays arranged by local schools, organisations and businesses.  Some have reflected the interests of the group and displayed publicity materials whilst others have been more traditionally decorated.  If you feel that you can be involved we would be delighted to hear from you.

Christmas trees can be set up in Church Friday 7th December between 4pm – 7pm

Trees can be taken down on Monday 10th December between 3pm – 4pm or 6pm – 7pm.  Please see Margaret if neither is convenient to arrange a mutually convenient time in advance.
