Will we have a Christmas Tree?

We appreciate it’s a long way off and that some people are unaware of the link between the Fair and the Christmas Tree but the proceeds of the running the Fair are used to fund the purchase, delivery, erection, lighting and insurance of the Downton Christmas Tree every year.  We also rely on the support of TreeMenders https://www.treemenders.org.uk/ when it is taken down.

We also ran the Partridge Fair but this is now being organised by a different group.

We’ll let you know nearer the time whether we’ll have sufficient funds for the Downton Christmas Tree.
