Well over 400 people visited Kirkheaton Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival over the weekend of the 10th and 11th December. The festival, now in its fourth year, hosted thirty five themed, decorated trees provided by local businesses and groups. There was no shortage of creative ideas. They ranged from a tree made out of green egg boxes accompanied by a snowman made of plastic cups! (KIrkwood Hospice) to one composed of mini ‘trees’ made from discarded paper back books (Friends of Kirkheaton Library) Mark Flynn’s winters scenes of Huddersfield graced one tree while another was festooned with knitted and crotcheted ornaments courtesy on the Community Centre’s Knit n Natter group.
Refreshments were available throughout the weekend. The festival ended with carols around the Christmas trees.
A big thank you to all those who helped make this a such a great community event.
