Tree festival organisers give thanks

Organisers of a Christmas festival have thanked all those who helped make the event a success.

Businesses and organisations in Blyth who supported St Cuthbert’s Annual Christmas Tree Festival have been thanked as hundreds of people descended on the event.

Church warden Roy Hugman said: “We want to convey our thanks to all of the businesses and organisations in Blyth who supported St Cuthbert’s Annual Christmas Tree Festival.

“Many hundreds of visitors came over the week to admire the displays of decorated and lighted trees which were put up and dressed by the sponsors.

“Many nice comments were received and the church are planning to hold another, even bigger festival next year.

“It turned out to be a lovely pre-Christmas event as the church was transformed into an enchanted forest.”
