Christmas Tree Festival 2016

On December 10th the Village Hall doors will be open to the fourth Christmas Tree Festival in High Halstow. This is now proving to be a must event in the High Halstow Calendar

It is not too late to let us know if your group, family, business etc would like to put a tree in. All we are asking for is a donation of £5.00 per tree submitted

Trees can be any size or shape, fresh or artificial; as far as decoration is concerned, the only limit is your imagination and afterwards your tree goes home with you for Christmas.

Trees can be decorated at the Hall or brought ready-decorated. Power is available for lights

Trees should be brought to the Hall on

Friday 9th December from 19.00 to 21.00 or
Saturday 10th December from 9.00 to 12.00

Trees must be collected on

Saturday 10th December from 17.00 to 18.00

Please invite all your friends to come and see your entry and enjoy this event. With your help – and with the help of others – please make this Christmas Tree Festival a success.

The public are invited to view the trees from 13.00 to 16.30 with entry being just 50p. Refreshments will be available on the day

Scarecrow Festival 2016

Thank You Thank You Thank You

When The Friends of St Margaret’s first discussed the Scarecrow Festival, none of us saw the number of entries reaching the giddy heights of 73. I personally didn’t think it would reach double figures and would be an event that might take a year or two to become established. How wrong was I. Each day coming home from work it was joy to see the new ones arising and it clearly had people talking in the Village and afar about this event even making Jeremy Vine’s programme on Radio 2

The Friends would like to thank all those who took part either by making your own scarecrow, making a donation (£252 raised) either at the Queen’s Birthday Bash or in the shop, Wenda for her constant publicity on Facebook and the Parish Council for this special colour edition of the High Halstow Times. Plans are afoot for next years Festival so please watch this space for more details in the coming months
