Dartmoor Christmas Trees

We are hosted and supported by UK Web Hosting

Each year a Christmas Tree Competition is held in Widecombe Church on a particular theme and in aid of a nominated charity, with entries invited from any local school, organisation, club or individual. Visitors are invited to look round at the trees and choose their favourites and vote in two sections: children and adult. There is also a collection box for the charity donations.

Trees were anonymous to make it harder to work out who had decorated it.

This year (Christmas 2016) the theme was 'a book' and the chosen charity was 'Make-a-wish'.

The results of the public vote were as follows:

Children's Section

  • 1st Widecombe Primary School, The Very Hungry Caterpillar
  • 2nd Widecombe Pre-School, The Snowman
  • 3rd Widdytots, That's Not My Reindeer
  • 4th New Beginnings Club, The Christmas Story

Adult Section

  • 1st Widecombe History Group, Mary Berry Cooks
  • 2nd Jenny Hocking, Africa, Eye to Eye with the Unknown
