Festival of trees

A spectacular display of Christmas Trees will adorn the historic Holy Trinity Church in Broadgate Coventry, commencing Wednesday 7th December to Wednesday 4th January.

The inspiration for this festival came from a Parish Church in Melton Mowbray, which has displayed trees for 13 years and is visited by thousands.

The Rotary Club of Coventry is organising this Festival in partnership with Holy Trinity, and proceeds will be shared between the Church and Rotary charities.

Former Lord Mayor, Cllr Michael Hammon said: “I am thrilled that this festival is taking place, and hope that many families and children will visit and enjoy the display. I wish the Festival to be a happy and successful event.”

Immediate Past President Ken Holmes invites charities, organisations and businesses to provide and display a tree. For details please telephone 024 7622 2393 or email: kenneth_holmes@tiscali.co.uk

There is no charge to display a tree though contributions to defray expenses will be most welcome.

Children will be able to visit the Festival free whilst others will be invited to give a donation to the Appeal.

A prize for the best innovative Christmas tree will be awarded.
