The children in years 4, 5 and 6 have been busy designing and creating their own Christmas tree decorations over the past few days ready to take part in the annual Christmas tree competition at Christ Church in Chineham. Thanks to a few helpful elves (Miss Hanafin and Miss James!) Great Binfields’ tree is now standing tall and proud, ready to be judged tomorrow. Our children worked hard not only to create their decoration but to also write a heartfelt Christmas prayer/wish to reflect the true meaning of Christmas.
The trees at Christ Church have been decorated by many groups from the local community and the church will reflect the diversity of activities that go on in the local area. Entrance is free, and Christ Church will be open for visitors to come to view the trees all day on the Saturday (10am to 5pm). Prize giving will be at 4:30pm. Throughout the day refreshments will be served, and light lunches will also be available. Proceeds go to support Basingstoke Night Shelter.
If you’re in the local area, why not pop in and place a vote for our tree!
