Tree decorating

 Our ‘natural tree’ by Nightingale Gardeners

Our ‘natural tree’ by Nightingale Gardeners

We were invited by St James church (Wulfstan Way) to decorate a tree for their Xmas tree festival on Saturday 8 December. So, we did one for Nightingale Gardeners and one for Little Nightingales. Using some hazel ‘tree outlines’ we made a couple of seasons ago.

Lots of volunteers made or brought along a ‘bauble’ or few, some with messages. We gathered greenery from the garden, laminated pressed flowers from the meadow (thanks Gill) and pressed leaves from our recent group outing to the Botanic Garden. We decorated with raffia and tied on pine cones foraged locally. Added some sweets from the club hut - thanks Owen!
