Thanks to everyone who came along and supported our Christmas tree festival this weekend.

Caritas children's choir got us underway with a selection of carols and Christmas songs and sang beautifully to get us all in the mood.

Everyone enjoyed looking at all the Christmas trees decorated by the different groups and organisations.

Hot, seasonal punch, mince pies, refreshments and all the home made cakes available to eat and buy meant that nobody went away hungry!

To date, over £550 has been raised for Little People.
