Grange festival is a big success
3:27pm Thursday 2nd January 2014 in News
Grange Christmas Tree Festival was held in St Paul's Church during December.
"St Paul's is a beautiful building which created a striking background for the festival with an altar crib, pew ends, candelabras and themed floral displays which all enhanced the festival," said churhwarden Christine Harrison.
"The festival opened with a welcoming, candlelit reception, an evening of music and singing with wine and nibbles, attended by more than 100 people.
"On the day of Grange Extravaganza the Bay Community Singers entertained another large and appreciative audience with their festive singing.
"The theme of the festival was 'Count your Blessings' and the 35 trees cleverly and creatively reflected this in their decorations.
"Children from Grange CE Primary School visited and the Grange U3A photographic group used the festival to practise their camera skills.
"The festival was a wonderful way of bringing the many clubs and organisations in the town together and was much appreciated by the 800 plus people who visited.
"Voluntary donations were welcomed and a cheque for £530 will be presented to the Mayor's fund to support the two chosen charities, St Mary's Hospice and Baysearch and Rescue.
