Christmas Tree Festival

From 3 - 12 December, a Christmas Tree Festival is being held in Ramsgate's St George's Church. A number of organisations in town are decorating their own individual tree and the trees are there to admire for all who come along during this period.

This beautiful church is lit up with the lights of all the different trees;

The festival announced outside;

The local Quilt Guild, Thanet and District Quilters also have a tree, here in the process of being decked by Angela, a committee member.

The local historical society has made sure that important historical figures are represented;

And this is the one the children from the Sunday School have made all by themselves, isn't it lovely?

Last but not least the local Health Food Shop's tree.. How stylish!! It makes me think of Narnia and the Icequeen, or Hans Andersen's Snow Queen, but in a good way! I think it is truly lovely.
