Congratulations to Sue Short and her team for having created yet another wonderful Christmas display at the Church - a worthy follow-up to last year's Angel Festival.

Congratulations, too, to all the village groups which created their own Christmas trees and showed such great originality and creativity.

The winner of a competition to name all the tree originators was Thomas Giles.
