I think it would be true to say that this year's Festival of Decorated Christmas Trees was even better than last year's. We had 42 entries and every one of them different. A great combination of all types of trees and sizes and it wasn't always the biggest ones that caught the eye.
In fact one of the smallest trees won 3rd prize, a popular choice with the voters... Special Branch... by Jesmond Policing Team and winner of 3rd prize in the group category. A branch in a pot with some baubles on it... Brilliant!
Our overall winner with 41 votes was Trecycle by West Jesmond Primary School. In contrast to Special Branch one of the biggest trees, put together with plastic bags cardboard and cartons. A work of art by the children and a very worthy winner.

Another popular tree and winner of 2nd prize in the group category went to the Tour Guides with Aintree.... Horses jumping through the tree over Bechers Brook... a clever idea.

It really is wonderful to see all the trees on the day and was extra special because so many of the local people were involved. Very much a community event and included local schools, businesses, shop, hotel, restaurant, families, organisations and Individuals.

People are already planning their tree for next year's event!
