Upminster Methodist Church’s annual Christmas Tree Festival runs until this Sunday
Upminster Methodist Church’s annual Christmas Tree Festival draws to a close this weekend.
The festival, which has run each year since 2010, sees local charities, schools, businesses and community groups decorating trees and displaying them in the church.
This year’s theme for decorations is “2012: a special year”.
Entry is free and visitors are asked to donate to two chosen charities: First Step, Havering, Barking and Brentwood Bereavement Society, and The Whitechapel Mission.
Visitors can vote for their favourite tree, and there is a “commemoration tree” where visitors can mark a personal event by hanging a “memory card”.
