Visitors to St Andrew’s Church in Cleveleys started their festive celebrations in style at a Christmas Tree Festival.

In its fourth year, the festival features Christmas trees decorated by different businesses and charities in Cleveleys.

This year, Helen Ashmore Funeral Service won the best decorated tree while children from Nutkins Nursery won the children’s prize.

The festival ran over Saturday, November 26 and Sunday, November 27 and also featured gift stalls, a raffle, tombola and craft acitivites.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the church’s fund-raising mission to replace the windows of the Grade II listed building.

Richard Grime, member of the Parish Church Committte, said: “The festival went really well.

“We had 23 trees and lots of visitors over the weekend.”

A Christmas Tree Festival at St Andrew (Rough Lea Road) Cleveleys, WITH FREE ENTRY, is in its 4th year this year. From Saturday 26th November (10.00 am to 4.00 pm), Sunday 27th & Monday 28th November (12 noon to 3.00 pm) you are free to wander, wonder, and smile! There will be various gift stalls for you to look at, raffle, tombola, craft activities, and seasonal, light refreshments. There will be things for children, and things for the child in all our hearts. If you have lost a loved one and wish to remember them in a practical way at this time, there will be an evergreen tree on which you can hang a gift tag with their name. The Team who have organised the Festival and others from St Andrew’s look forward to welcoming you to this really delightful event, held in a very beautiful space. And, if you wish to attend the Sunday evening of music and song, The Encore Ladies’ Choir will be entertaining us, using the theme of Following the Star. The concert begins at 7.00 pm, and there is a small charge of £5.00 for this part of the event. (There is no Inclusion in a script for the Gazette:
