Christmas Tree Town book  £5

The Christmas Tree Town book is a lovely story written by recently retired Rev Martin Short, with a foreword from him explaining the significance of the 10th anniversary of the Tree Festival, and how most of our primary school children hadn't experienced a year in their life without the Christmas Tree Festival until last year when it was cancelled because of the Covid pandemic. The books cost £5 and are available from Borzoi Books, Stow News and the Christmas Tree Festival. Alternatively you can order by mailing secretary@stedwardsstow.org.uk. 

Our Christmas Tea Towels, cookery books and soup cookery books are also available to buy, at a cost of £5.00. Please email secretary@stedwardsstow.org.uk if you wish to order any.
