Screen Shot 2016-01-14 at 18.55.02Balerno Parish Church has hosted a Christmas Tree Festival for the last few years. This year there was 36 trees decorated by various groups, organisations and businesses from around Balerno. The theme was “The Christmas Story”. The Pentland Singers entered a tree and Sarah, Lorna and Alison from the adult choir, Genevieve from junior choir and Kieran an ex junior spent a relaxing Saturday making decorations. We made numerous angels each with a different facial expression, Mary and Joseph, the three shepherds and the three kings, all from a basic cone shape for the body.(thanks to Ronnie MacBeth ). Genevieve, Kieran and Alison had fun decorating the tree on the Friday. Over 500 people visited the festival over the weekend. The trees were judged by Alistair Darling and Ricky Henderson. We were delighted to receive one of three special commendations as there were some spectacularly decorated trees. (Photos in the gallery)
