CHRISTMAS BEGINS IN EDENFIELD
This weekend saw Edenfield Parish church start the festive season in style with their Christmas tree festival.
The trees and displays are beautiful and demonstrate clearly that Edenfield is a wonderfully close village with lots of
groups and organisations who are active within the village.The festival has had many visitors over the past 2 days who
have all enjoyed the even and there is always tomorrow to go!
Edenfield resident comment:
‘’I have had a wonderful afternoon at the Christmas Tree Festival. Well done to all those who decorated trees,
my favourites were the gnome/plant pot decorated tree by Edenfield Horticultural Society, the Lego
Christmas tree by Jam club and the beautiful and educational display provided by Stubbins School.
Great to see so many friends there and to whomever had made the shortbread biscuit stars, they were delicious!!’’
‘’ If anyone's passing church today, I can highly recommend the bacon butties - £1!!! And, of course, lots of
handmade Christmas decorations for sale.’’
‘’the tree festival was lovely, it is good to see all the village coming together and participating, well done to
everyone for all their hard work as these things don’t just happen on their own’’ G.Ingham (Darwen)
More thoughts from Parents from Stubbins School
Took my two daughters yesterday after school and got a very warm welcome, I walked round with one very
proud big sister and her very excited little sister. The displays reminded me of how large our community is.
The girls loved the sparkling beauty of all the trees before enjoying eating their delicious cookies in the
warmth and comfort of the refreshment tent. The perfect start to our Christmas.
The festival has another day to run…..reopening tomorrow at 12 midday until 6.30pm where it closes with
a sung evensong surrounded by the beauty of the trees.
