LAST week saw the excellent Christmas Tree Festival held at St Mary’s Church on Holton Road.

The 37 trees, decorated by schoolchildren, charities and other local organisations, were a wondrous sight, reflecting the amount of work put into the creations.

I was fortunate enough to be able to enjoy concerts from children at Ysgol Gymraeg Sant Baruc and Gladstone Primary School and I was told that all of the concerts from other schools were also of a similarly excellent standard.

I know that the congregation at the church put a great deal of effort into the festival and showed fantastic hospitality, and I hope it will be repeated next year. Merry Christmas! Nadolig Llawen!
