Little angels (and shepherds!) enjoyed a magical start to the festive season during a visit to Ely’s Christmas Tree Festival this morning.
The Cubs group at Rainbow Pre-School, aged between two and three, got a special tour of the beautiful Christmas trees on display at the Ely Methodist Church, as well as the chance to take part in a short Nativity scene.
The children were invited to dress up as angels and shepherds as part of the celebration.
Each child was given a bauble or decoration to put on their favourite tree.
The exhibition features a huge assortment of trees, decorated by local groups, organisations and charities, including Cambridgeshire Constabulary, Forest School children at The Lantern, 3rd Ely Cubs, L2 Drive, City of Ely Flower Club, Ely and Newmarket Methodist Circuit Guild and a Fairtrade tree – to name just a few.
But with these particular youngsters, their favourite tree was the one they’d decorated themselves – the Rainbow Pre-School Christmas Tree!
Before leaving the festival, the youngsters took a few moments to pose in front of their tree.
Each year the Christmas Tree Festival at the Chapel Street church attracts hundreds of visitors.
