The fourth annual Christmas Tree Festival took place at St Mary’s Church, Holton Road, Barry – and it was wonderful. The standard of entries gets better every year. The culmination of the Festival was an afternoon Carol Concert, attended by Jane and the Vale of Glamorgan Mayor Cllr Fred Johnson, and Deputy Mayor of Barry, Cllr Charlotte Williams. The church was packed, and everyone enjoyed the entertainment from St Athan Junior Brass Band, The Real Lives Choir from People’s First charity, St Helen’s School Choir and Geoff Peart, local folk singer. A donation from the proceeds of the Festival was made to Llamau, the charity supporting young homeless people and women.
Jane thanked everyone involved for a lovely afternoon.
