Group festive all year


The women in Nimble Fingers craft group spend all year celebrating Christmas.

The group of six meets every Tuesday afternoon to create beautiful decorations to adorn a collection of Christmas trees that takes pride of place in the West Hamilton Anglican Parish's foyer.

The group, which has been meeting for 10 years, adds a new tree to its collection each year.

Members Yvonne Hewitt and Christine Wagstaff said the women choose a theme for the new tree at the beginning of the year and then create delicate, intricate decorations for it.

This year they have also erected a handmade nativity scene in the church.

"A celebration of Christmas" will be held tomorrow at the parish on Rifle Range Rd, from 1-5pm.

You can join members of the craft group and parish and sing along to carols at 2.30pm.

The trees can also be viewed from December 3-5 from 12.30-3.30pm.

The parish is located opposite Frankton Primary School.
