Christmas Tree Festival.

The village of Pirton, Worcestershire, was originally part of the Croome Estate and is located one mile north of  Croome Park (now owned by the National Trust). Pirton Court was historically the home of Viscount Deerhurst. The village church, St. Peters, containing elements dating back to the C12, with its unique black and white timber bell tower has recently been in need of substantial repairs to the bell tower, the clock and weather vane.

This small community has undertaken several imaginative fund-raising enterprises and since 2013 they have held a Christmas Tree Festival. These pictures are from our visit this year. ( The red glow in the pictures are from the over head heaters.)

There were 26 trees, each one decorated, by a family in the village, with a different theme, some for fun, others in memory of absent friends or family.

The windows and doors were also decorated.

 

 

 

Warming cups of tea and cake were for sale in a marquee alongside the church.

  1. A nice fundraiser, appealing to all ages. Maybe they need to do a ‘Go Fund Me’ appeal. The internet reaches millions of people.
    We put up our tree last week – I love the twinkly lights and the lovely pine scent!

  2. What a beautiful array of Christmas trees decorated with imagination and love. I’ve not visited this year but Chester Cathedral has an annual Christmas tree festival with the trees decorated by local schools. It’s always quite magical. I’ve just finished decorating our tree which is sadly suffering from dropping needle syndrome. Wishing you a most Happy Christmas Brian and may 2018 treat you and your garden kindly.
