Aldeburgh Christmas Festivities at Aldeburgh Parish Church

We were delighted to be asked to be part of the Aldeburgh Christmas Festivities this year. The organisers very kindly donated 10 real trees and decorations for the event. So on Thursday 7th December all the local organisations were invited to decorate their trees and the Church groups, Brownies and The Red House decorated the larger trees. It was a day of baubles and tinsel galore.

Saturday the 8th kicked off with a Victorian Market in the Church Hall selling lots of wonderful Christmas goodies and mince pies and mulled wine. The Church bells rang at 1pm to announce the start of the Church activities. We had crafts and Christmas fun happening in the Children’s corner, Dickens readings in the Trinity Chapel. The Red House scratch choir singing carols throughout the day. Also the flower team were hosting make your own Christmas decorations demonstrations with the chance to win the end results in a raffle. We had many many visitors throughout the day to come and join in and see the Christmas Trees and of course our knitted nativity.

Our thanks must go to the organisers of the event who really helped us make this day very special for our Church. Also a huge thank you to the lifeboat crew who helped set up the trees.
