Dronfield Christmas Tree Festival with a difference......
WE'RE BRANCHING OUT!
The coronavirus epidemic has accounted for many of our area’s regular attractions throughout 2020, but one event which will not be succumbing is the annual Dronfield Christmas Tree Festival.
It cannot go ahead in its usual Dronfield Parish Church surroundings, but organisers have teamed up with Dronfield Eye to take the festival out into the community, creating a Christmas Tree Trail throughout the S18 area.
Instead of businesses, societies, schools and other organisations setting up terrific trees together in the magnificent church building, the plan is for everyone to decorate spectacular spruces and fabulous firs at their own premises, either outdoors or inside their window.
Every business or household is invited to join in and both Dronfield Eye and Dronfield Parish Church will be promoting the Christmas Tree Trail, letting people know where to enjoy them.
Tree locations will feature on the Dronfield Eye facebook page and we want folk to register by sending us pictures of their own special creations. Starting date is Friday, December 4th, and trees should remain in place until after the Christmas holiday.
Said Dronfield Eye editor Mike Firth: “The Tree Festival at the Parish Church has been a huge attraction for the past two years and we are delighted to have been invited to join in to support it in a different format this winter.
“This Christmas is shaping up to be different for every single one of us, but while we may have to remain apart, here is one thing the community can do together. Everyone in Dronfield and the surrounding S18 villages is invited to join in and we’re looking forward to seeing some fabulous creations.”
