THE TALE OF THE TREES 2018
Pages of pictures by our paparazzi
illustrating the 10th Annual Christmas Tree Festival at St
Faith's Great Crosby.
Chapter One - Making
All Things Ready
The pattern of events is familiar. The
arrival of the shrouded trees proclaims that Christmas is
coming, even though Advent has yet to arrive.
The St Faith's Cubs come into their own as they, with a
little adult assistance, put in place the usual
position the trees and make all ready for the army of
adorners and light-bearers who will be decorating their
chosen tree and charity in time for Advent Sunday.
They pose for a group picture and enjoy a sleepover in the
church hall, before the Advent Sunday morning Toy Service
(where gifts for local needy children are gladly received),
the lighting of the first Advent Candle and Church
lead into the beginning of the Christmas Tree Festival week
at St Faith's.
