|Nick Hancock Launches St Mary's Christmas Tree Festival
MUCKLESTONE: Television presenter Nick Hancock will launch St Mary's Christmas Tree Festival, in Mucklestone, near Market Drayton, on Saturday, December 12, at 10.30am.
The event, in aid of the Donna Louise Children's Hospice, will see more than 30 Christmas trees displayed in the church and decorated by local clubs, schools and businesses.
Nick will judge the best-dressed tree competition after a short service of celebration and thanks from the Reverend Jonathan Eades.
There will also be a memorial tree, on which visitors may commemorate baptisms, weddings or the loss of a loved one, by writing a message to hang on the tree.
