Applications opened on the 19th April, and closed at the end of May. All successful applications were informed of their place by the end of June. Any late applications are placed on a waiting list, and as experience tells us that it is likely that at least one charity will drop out before the festival, it is worth contacting us if you are still interested.
It is now the time when groups are filling out their volunteer forms which have to be returned – hard copies only please – by 14th September. If anyone has a problem printing a volunteer form, please contact us. Volunteer forms for the general public will be available in church from the end of July.
All trees are kindly donated as usual by Fakenham Garden Centre.
There will be a Christmas Market selling Christmas gifts, crafts and ‘goodies’ – including small beautifully decorated home made Christmas cakes – and a bookstall full of beautiful new books and similar gifts; a raffle and our ever popular tombola. Our Church Café will be open for refreshments between 10am and 5pm including our famous home-made cakes, filled rolls and home made soups.
The festival will be open from 10.00am – 8.00pm every day except Sunday, when it will be midday – 8.00pm, after the 10am Festival Service, where the charities and groups represent their work. Refreshments will be available between 10am and 5pm.
We are happy to welcome leashed, well-behaved dogs. They will not be allowed in the kitchen/cafe areas, but you are welcome to purchase refreshments and consume in other areas of the church.
It is essential that all coach, school, youth or residential groups book well in advance. This is to avoid clashes, safeguard against overcrowding, and to make sure that all visitors have the best experience possible. Bookings will be taken from the launch on 19th April. Groups are asked to book by ringing Alison on 01328 864685 or contacting the team at email@example.com .
We are looking forward to the church once again buzzing with people enjoying the trees and the celebratory atmosphere, and raising much needed funds for the charities taking part.
The CTF Team will, at all times, insist on adherence to whatever COVID guidelines are in place at the time.
