Christmas Tree Festival at St. Peter’s Church, Stoke Fleming.
The 11th Christmas Tree Festival is due to take place in St. Peter’s Church,

This is always a very special event, which kick starts Christmas for many
sponsors and visitors alike.
The Church will be open, and refreshments are available, from 10.00 a.m.
to 6.00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and then 10.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. on
Sunday when there will be cheerful carols to conclude the event.
Entry to the Church is free, but donations are welcome and are shared
between the Church and a different chosen charity each year. This year
the charity will be Devon & Cornwall Food Action so your visit will help
support the tremendous work they do. Those wishing to remember their
own loved ones are invited to add a prayer to the Prayer Tree in the
Church, which will remain in place over the Christmas period.
Organisers, Rokie Shiffner and Shirley Ruddlesden would like to thank all
the sponsors and helpers. They look forward to welcoming new and
returning visitors to the Festival. For further information please phone
