Christmas
Festival of Trees


After months of planning and hours (well, days) of
preparation Collessie Church was transformed as part of the celebration of its’
175th Anniversary. Ten Nordman firs, their tops high above the pews,
were beautifully decorated, each with its own theme. Standing at the front and
tallest of all was the 10foot, traditional church tree festooned with lights.
Along the back were a dozen created trees including the Sweetie tree, “Buttons
& Bows”, “Saving the planet” (a tree made from recycled bottles) and the
Celtic tree for nature. In the far corner beyond the organ, were 15 model trees
made by the older pupils from Letham Primary School. Altogether it was a
spectacular display, particularly when the natural light began to fade &
the tree lights shone out brightly. More trees painted by the younger Letham
pupils greeted visitors to the hall, where refreshments were served alongside
crafts and other activities.
