St Michael and All Angels Church, Glassenbury Drive, Bexhill, invite you to join them for their tenth annual Christmas Tree Festival commencing on Saturday December 5 at 10.00 am.

This year’s theme is ‘Heroes and Villains’ and there will be 25 imaginatively dressed Christmas Trees depicting favourite Heroes and Villains. The titles chosen are varied and include Dr Livingstone, Neil Armstrong, My Mum, the Queen, Bear Grylis to name but a few.

Entrance adults £2.50; accompanied children are admitted free of charge.

On Saturday and Sunday light lunches will be served in the hall together with a variety of stalls selling craft items, gifts, home made cakes and jewellery.

On Sunday December 6 at 3pm all are invited to a special service to welcome St Nicholas to Bexhill.

The service will be warm, friendly and especially for children and families. There will be Christmas carols and songs, poems and a short talk. The service will last for about 30 minutes.

St Nicholas is known for bringing toys to children at Christmas. As in previous years there’s the opportunity to take a toy to the service and ask St Nicholas to give it to children in the area who are less fortunate than ourselves, to those who might not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas.

Afterwards enjoy a drink and take a camera to have a picture taken with the man of the moment..St Nicholas.

The week long festival will continue until Friday December 11 when from 7-9pm live entertainment, mince pies and mulled wine will be available.
