Our Christmas Tree Festival this year (2nd, 3rd and 4th December) was another triumph with a truly amazing display of imaginative and cleverly executed tree designs.
The event raised over £650 - a spectacular achievement in the midst of so much financial doom and gloom - the good people of Shefford can always be relied upon to support a good cause; thank you to everyone who contributed!
Visitors are asked to vote for their 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourite trees from which the 'Public Vote Winner' prize is awarded. This year's winner of the Public Vote was Shefford Lower School. The children collected and decorated empty plastic bottles to actually build their tree giving a strong environmental awareness message.
An additional prize is awarded by an external Judge and this year's winner was TJ Plumbing who also built their own tree, soldered together from copper pipes and fittings.
We would like to give a HUGE thankyou to the Potter family who plan, promote and run this annual event for us.
