St. Peter’s Parish Church

Tilton on the Hill - Leicestershire


Friday 7th - Sunday 9th December 2012 - Christmas Tree Festival & Christmas Market

Friday night Carols around the Christmas Trees with Jane, Julie, Emily, Tim and friends was a very special event. The Church looked fabulous, being lit by the lights of 34 Christmas Trees. The mulled wine flowed and hot mince pies were soon consumed by the 80 guests. Thank you to everyone who made the night so memorable.  

The two days of viewing the Christmas Trees in the Church and buying at the Christmas Market had a steady flow of visitors. The raffle was very successful, so many thanks to the Tilton Villagers who donated goods for the hampers and the Companies who donated prizes. This alone raised £880.

Thank you to everyone who helped over the weekend, those who made soup, mince pies, cakes, sold raffle tickets and helped with all the other jobs that needed doing to makes it such a success. Over 200 people visited the Church during the weekend.

A grand total of £2,255.00 was raised over the 3 days which will be put towards the repair of the Bell Tower at the church.

The winners of the favourite trees as voted by the visitors were:-

           Eat, DRINK & be Merry entered by Lena Novacic                                     The Snowman entered by Tiddlywinks Pre School Children
