year I didn’t get to the Erith Christmas Tree Festival because I thought it was
going to be open longer than it was and I may have forgotten this year if it hadn’t been for Hugh Neal of
Maggot Sandwich fame. He has been roped in to being
a Friend of Christ Church Erith, which is where the Festival is held.
While browsing around I immediately stumbled upon the trees sponsored by local Labour politicians, the fact that I saw none from Tories was probably because I didn’t look at every single one.
The Festival has a website but don’t go there without an unlimited broadband connection. The pictures above are around 5,000 bytes each. The not dissimilar one on the Festival website is more than 1,000 times bigger and might damage your phone bill if using a mobile.
For your information the Festival is open until 7 p.m. this evening and 5 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday 14th. Well worth a look especially if you have young children, and it's free but with a bucket for donations.
