Organisers of St Conan’s Christmas Tree Festival are twinkling with good news.

The popular event at the historic kirk in Lochawe is back this year from Thursday December 2 to Sunday December 5.

‘After an imposed year off, the Christmas Tree Festival is returning,’ said Friends of St Conan’s Kirk.

To help keep everyone safe, the festival will run for an extra day and be open for extra hours at the weekend. Masks will have to be worn and plans are being put in place to work out the layout and flow of visitors.

Individuals, families, businesses, organisations and groups can all take part and enter a tree. The rules include the trees should be at least 4 feet, can be real or made of anything, must be lit by battery lights and can be any theme as long as it is suitable for children to see.

Visitors to the festival will be asked to make a donation towards the Kirk’s restoration and will be invited to vote for their favourite tree.

Interested in taking part? Email by October 15.
