Christmas Tree Festival at Retford

The tree was taken down yesterday and the festival is now over. It was a great success with so many visitors. I went along to help serve refreshments and, also, work the front of house. There was a wonderful community spirit and the church looked amazing with the variety of trees all lit up.
