11th Christmas Tree Festival
A big thank you to everyone who helped and supported the 2019 Christmas Tree Festival both before with setting up, the running over the weekend and the clearing up afterwards. We are very grateful to so many people from our community who either displayed trees and/or helped with stewarding and other tasks. Special thanks go to the Santa Lady who came with all her Santa’s on the Saturday. A wide variety of trees were on display there being nearly forty in total
It was lovely to see many people of all ages coming throughout the weekend to view the trees, some of them came more than once. On the Monday it was again the turn of pupils and staff from Exminster Community Primary School coming in groups throughout the day and it was also a delight to welcome the children and staff from Exminster Pre-School.
We are pleased to announce that a total of £1,023 has been raised. This is being divided equally between two children’s charities who operate in Devon. They are Action for Children and Children’s Hospice South West.
Thank you everyone
Christmas cards Thanks go to all those who kindly assisted by delivering Christmas Cards around the village. Approximately 1,800 cards were delivered. The delivery was shared between St Martin’s Parish Church, Connect and the Methodist Church.
