Tree Festival set to open today in Burnham-On-Sea
tree festival is to open in Burnham-On-Sea today (Saturday,
December 10th) when a dozen sparkling trees will go on display
for a fortnight.
Andrew's Church is holding the annual tree festival and life-size
crib scene every day until Christmas Eve.
businesses and organisations from Burnham and Highbridge have
arranged the decorations on the trees while the Children's Society
Committee has arranged the Crib Scene.
Christmas trees have been decorated with unique items linked to
the sponsoring company. Among the trees is one decorated by the
team at Burnham-On-Sea.com.
Richard Allen, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The trees
look wonderful. We have a good selection and they will be lit
right up to Christmas Eve."
trees will be illuminated for the first time at 6pm on Saturday
evening and the church will then be open for the public to view
the trees from 10am-4pm each day until Christmas (and on Sunday
afternoons). Entry is free, although charity donations are welcome.
