Stars or angels, it’s all a tree treat

Do you like your Christmas tree with a star or an angel on the top?

You can vote for this and more at this weekend’s St Mark’s Church’s annual Christmas tree festival, with all proceeds going to charity.

Schools, community groups and families have entered 42 trees.

Festival goers can pay $5 to have their say on which tree is the best decorated.

From teddy bears or peg dolls to others made from scratch out of paper mache, their sight is set to delight.

Each entrant can choose the charity to receive the money they raise, including the Anglican Board of Mission Typhoon Appeal, RSPCA and Carevan.

Parishioner Bruce James said visitors were always surprised with the variety and creativity of the trees.

“The people who come really enjoy it,” Mr James said.

“It’s a representation of the spirit.”

The festival, which opened last night, will run until tomorrow night, with a sausage sizzle, stalls and carols.
