So the efforts of the committee came together this evening with the setup of the Weaverham Show Christmas tree. If you’re going to St Mary’s to have a look round, please stop by the table and have a flick through the 2015 schedule to give you an idea of what you might be able to enter in the 2016 show. Or you could just have a look at the tree for some ideas!
It’s a really creative effort with knitted carrots, hand sewn mini quilts, festive bunting, miniature spoons & tables and…
Stained glass biscuits!!
Yes. They do exist! And yes. They are real actual biscuits! The author would not mislead you and in the interests of accurate journalism was forced to sample both the biscuits and the gingerbread men. They were delicious! My unreserved apologies go out to the baker and her chief tester for ever doubting the existence of such things.
The church looks amazing with some brilliant trees brought in/made & decorated by various local community groups and it was a lovely atmosphere. It isn’t possible to mention them all here, so please go along and have a look. I was definitely surprised by the amount of different organisations dotted around the village. The festival is open on Saturday 12th December from 10am through until 3pm for you to have a look round, but what sounds really inviting is the carol service at 4pm on Sunday 13th December, which will be a short service lit by the Christmas tree lights.
Have a wonderful Christmas. We’ll be getting back to you in the new year with the build up to the 2016 show.
