Christmas Tree Festival

We spent a happy evening making decorations for our tree which will be in the Christmas Tree Festival soon. This is what we made, with some mulled wine to help us along.

And here’s the finished result, with some of the makers. Come and see our tree along with all the others at the Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival, 12th-15th December.

Christmas Tree Festival

Please come and see our tree at the Christmas Tree Festival at the Parish Church from 6th to 9th December. There will be 40 trees to see, all set up by local charities and community groups, so bring some coins to support your favourites.  There will be musical performances and the cafe will be open.

For more information see Otley Christmas Tree Festival.


Christmas Tree Festival

Otley in Bloom have decorated a Christmas tree with giant pompom bumblebees, to symbolise the importance of bee-friendly planting in our gardens, and because it was fun making them. The Christmas tree is on display as part of the Otley Christmas Tree Festival at Otley Parish Church on Saturday 10th Dec from 10am to 6pm, and Sunday 11th Dec from 11am-4pm. For more information see the festival website.

Christmas Tree Festival 2015

On Monday 7th a few of us got together to sort out the tree decorations we have, and make some more.

 Otley in Bloom decorated a tree in the Parish Church as part of the Christmas Tree Festival.  And then the festival began on Wed 9th Dec and continues until Sat 12th Dec.  For more information see the festival’s website.

Please come and see our tree and the 39 others that will be there – there will be musical performances and a cafe throughout.

Explore the highlights of Otley in Bloom on a guided walk led by David Bellerby, as part of Otley Walking Festival.  Hopefully it will be a lovely sunny evening for a stroll around the town, starting at 7pm from the Jubilee Clock in the Market Place and lasting a couple of hours.
