As many of you will be aware, St Andrew's Church held their very first Christmas Tree Festival at the weekend, when local businesses, organisations and groups were invited to provide a decorated tree for display in the church. Visitors were then invited to vote for their favourite tree in the three categories.
On the opening night, Friday, 2nd December one of our Year Two children helped Bishop Rogers to turn the light on, on the tower star and after Evensong on Sunday, 4th December, the votes were counted.
To our delight, the Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery tree entry won the children's entries with a whopping 108 votes, winning £20 which will be put to good use for the benefit of all our pupils.
A massive thank you to our partnership governor George Posner for providing the tree, Mrs Felton for arranging the decoration and transport of the tree and of course to all our children who carefully made their own decorations.
