What's Special About

This Christmas Tree?


This is the Christmas Tree that was prepared by members of Charnwood U3A for display in the recent All Saints Christmas Tree Festival. As our Chairman writes:-


I had the privilege of being invited to the official opening of the All Saints Christmas Tree Festival on 27th November. Our U3A Treasurer, Bob Pyatt, came with me to mingle with the great and good of Loughborough. The event was attended by Michael Kapur, the new Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire who, in a darkened church, performed the switch on.

The Christmas trees burst into glorious light and we had the opportunity to look at them whilst being entertained by a talented young man playing saxophone, accompanied on the piano by his father. We enjoyed light refreshments as we had a closer look at the trees and we found 'ours' looking very stylish having been decorated by members Wendy Hoult and friends.

Thank you for making such a good display of the multitude of activities embraced by Charnwood U3A.
