The Magic of Christmas Comes Early to Wisborough Green In the run up to Christmas 2015, as the Church of St Peter ad Vincula prepares to hold its third biennial Advent Christmas Tree Festival from December 5 – 13 - to raise much needed funds for Chest- nut Tree House and St Peter ad Vincula.

Chestnut Tree House is the only children’s hospice in Sussex caring for children with life limiting and life threatening illnesses and relies solely on donations.

The plan for the festival is to fill the church with dozens of real Christmas trees that have been kindly sponsored by local businesses and individuals. All the trees will be beautifully lit with white LED lights and decorated to a Christmas Carol and Stars theme by village groups and sponsors creating a Spiritual and Magical experience.

The week of festivities will commence with a grand ‘switch-on’ at 12 noon on Saturday December 5.

As well as viewing this amazing spectacle during the course of the festival you will also be able to enjoy a con- cert performed by talented local people on Thursday December 5 at 7.30pm.

Rev Clive Jenkins (Priest-in-charge of St Peter ad Vincula Church) said: “This is one of the wonderful initiatives the church has planned to engage the community of Wisborough Green and the surrounding area – each day the doors of the church will be open from 10.30am to 7pm – so, come along and have some fun, enjoy our refreshments and view our beautiful church”
