Sparkling Christmas tree festival opens in Burnham-On-Sea

A fortnight-long Christmas tree festival has opened in Burnham-On-Sea with a dozen sparkling trees on display.

St Andrew's Church is holding the seasonal festival, along with a display of its life-size crib, every day until Christmas Eve.

On Saturday evening (December 11th) more than 50 people attended a special ceremony to formally light-up the colourfully-decorated trees, which are sponsored by a dozen local firms.

Entry by members of the public to the tree festival is free, although donations are being encouraged for The Children's Society.

Organiser Richard Allen told "The trees look wonderful this year and will be lit right up to Christmas Eve."

The church is open for the festival every day from 10am-4pm, except Sundays, in the run-up to Christmas. The trees have been decorated with unique decorations according to the sponsoring company.
