Christmas Tree Festival
25 - 28 November, St Mary’s Church, Rolleston–on–Dove

Members of St Mary's Church in Rolleston believe their Christmas Tree Festival, organised by Sylvia Martin, is a first for East Staffordshire and South Derbyshire. 

The beautiful Church of St Mary’s was filled with over 30 trees, all created by local organisations with themes relating to their interests. There was a variety of trees, conventional, artificial and "different", and the decorations ranged from an "All Stars" tree by the Sunday School to "Nature's Sparklers" by members of the Tutbury Flower Club.

There was also a special ‘Memory’ tree for visitors and friends to commemorate baptisms, weddings or the loss of a loved one by writing on a special card to hang on the tree. The donations for this will help boost much needed Church funds.

In the Old School Room ladies from the ‘4 C ’s’ craft group had a stall of magnificent handmade items for sale. A splendid opportunity to join in with members of the congregation of St. Mary’s Rolleston to think about the true meaning of Christmas.
