A GARLAND, inspired by the famous Christmas decoration at Cotehele House, is on display in North Cornwall this weekend.
Members of Werrington Ladies' Circle last year visited Cotehele when their garland was being made and some were so inspired that they decided to make one to hang in Yeolmbridge Methodist Church, which is at nearby Ladycross, over the Christmas period.
"The garland was amazing and generated many complimentary comments from those who saw it," says member Mary Cole.
"This year we decided to make another one and combine the viewing of it with a Christmas tree festival which is to be held over three days – December 13, 14 and 15 from 11am to 6pm each day.
There will be craft stalls, and the usual hospitality opportunities available all day.
The weekend will end with a Community Carol Service at 6pm on Sunday when the guest performers will be the Cadenza Singers, a group of ladies who meet at Yeolmbridge each week under the baton of Rob Parkin.
Those taking part include three local schools – Werrington, North Petherwin and Boyton – two pre-school nurseries, the cricket club, Werrington Church, the men's skittles team and the ladies' skittles team.
