The Christmas tree festival raised £257 for Butterwick House Children’s Hospice.

There was a steady stream of visitors throughout the day on Saturday with activities for the children and delicious refreshments to enjoy. During the morning there was hand bell ringing led by Julia Campbell.  The church was open again after the morning service on Sunday.

There were 23 trees and arrangements with 10 of them from Seamer residents, groups and businesses. The 5th photo is a tree of hands from the Monday Pop in regulars and the 14th photo is what the children decorated at the children’s Christmas workshop.

Serving the refreshments is Gwen Aston (6th photo) who also displayed the Tree of Remembrance (15th photo).  The poppies were all hand knit by Gwen.

The carol service was led by The Rev Sarah Strand which was well attended and finished with festive drinks and mince pies.
