Not only were there more trees and wreaths than ever before but there was also more support from the community, the church and members of the public. Over 50 beautifully decorated trees and 16 wreaths provided a wonderful atmosphere in St John’s Church. Most trees and all wreaths were part of a silent auction where bids could be left and those winning had a completely decorated tree all ready for Christmas. There were two concerts to open and close the festival. The opening concert featured South Hants Accordions and the Goodnight Sweethearts. At the closing concert the entertainment was provided by Marchwood Military Wives followed by local rock group, Court House 5. A huge thank you to all the performers who gave freely of their time. Also a big thank to Rev Jo, and those who were on hand to ‘meet and greet’ in the church, to all the different groups, schools and individuals for donating trees and especially to the small band of helpers who put the festival together. Lastly to everyone who came in to have a look and enjoy the sight – that really makes it all worthwhile. The festival has now been established as a real community event and we have already had enquiries from people wishing to donate trees and decorations next year.
