SHOREHAM’S St Mary de Haura Church will be hosting a Christmas Tree Festival from November 5 to 6.

Held by Worthing Churches Homeless Projects, the festival will raise funds for the charity with a variety of festive events.

The charity is invited local businesses to take part in providing and decorating a tree for display for the weekend.

This can be in festive colours with tinsel and baubles, or something a bit different to represent your business.

All contributors will be listed in the programme, and are invited to leave promotional materials around the base of the tree.

It is free for local businesses to take part by decorating a tree.

There will also be craft stalls and refreshments, including homemade cakes available throughout the weekend.

The festival will be open to the public over the weekend between 10am and 6pm on the Saturdy, and 11am and 6pm on the Sunday.

There will also be an opportunity for visitors to vote for their favourite tree.

If your business or organisation would like to take part by decorating a tree, or if you would like to purchase advertising space in the programme, contact, call 01903 286480, or download a registration form from
