A message from President 2006/2007 Geoff Hull

President 2006/2007 Geoff HullWe are delighted to be organising Scunthorpe’s second annual Festival of Christmas Trees. The Festival will once again be hosted by the congregation of St Mark’s Methodist Church, Ashby Road, to whom we are profoundly grateful for the welcome they afford us and every visitor.

We are inviting all members of the public to visit the Festival which, this year, is being held across two consecutive weekends.

As last year there will be no entrance fee at the door but we are hoping, once again, to collect lots of donations in support of Lindsey Lodge Hospice!

We could not hope to run the Festival without the huge support from all the different organisations that contribute a tree – decorated to represent themselves. The target this time is to have over 40 individually decorated trees and the whole effect should be even more spectacular and magical than last year.

Please come and see the Festival and bring your family and friends - I look forward to meeting you there!
