Fettercairn is busy preparing for its biannual Christmas Tree Festival in Fettercairn Parish Church this weekend November 28-29.
The church is always beatuifully adorned with Christmas trees of various colours and sizes, which have been decorated by different village organisations, businesses and individuals.
Everyone throws themselves enthusiastically into this event, and spends long hours making decorations and planning their titles. People choose their own theme for their tree.
In the past there have been some very inventive themes and titles ‘Roses grow in Quality Street’ ‘The gruffalo’ ‘Recycling’ ‘Away in a Manger’ to name but a few.
The church is open from 10.00a.m.-4.00p.m. on the Saturday andd from 11.00a.m. - 4.00p.m. on the Sunday. Unfortunately there is no ‘Soup and Sweet’ owing to the closure of the Public Hall, but they will be serving refreshments over the whole weekend.
Saturday Lunch will be a simple affair with Sausage Rolls and fruit loaves. There will be the usual delicious hombaking on offer over the weekend too.
There will also be a Christmas Gift Stall, a ‘Guess the price of the Hamper’ stall and a children’s Lucky Dip. The money raised will go towards West Mearns Church’s Fabric ‘Rot Fund’.
The church are asking residents and people around Kincardine and Mearns for support for the event, and asking that you come along and get yourself into the ‘Spirit of Christmas’
