Grenoside Christmas Tree Festival 2020

Grenoside’s annual Christmas Tree Festival turned into festive village trail

Grenoside’s popular Christmas Tree Festival will this year be transformed into a
Christmas village trail helping people get into the festive spirit whilst still adhering to
social distancing.

In these uncertain times organisers of the annual event, which attracts hundreds of
visitors each year, still wanted to do something that brightens up Christmas for
everyone in Grenoside and beyond. Chris Levesley explains: “The event can’t be held in its usual format this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, so instead we are asking the people of Grenoside to take part in the first ever ‘Grenoside Christmas Tree Trail’. Christmas is definitely not
cancelled in Grenoside!”

“We want families and businesses to get involved by decorating and theming
Christmas trees outside their premises and homes. We will create a mapped walking
trail making the village THE place in Sheffield to visit this December.”
Grenoside Christmas Tree Trail will run for the whole of December, with voting for
the public's favourite tree from the 5th to the 13th. There will be two main points to
buy maps (£2.00 each) over the weekend of 5th and 6th October, and voting will be
completed online or by dropping a voting slip off.

Entry open to everyone in Grenoside and families or businesses can decorate a tree
in their garden – either a traditional Christmas Tree bought for the trail, or an existing
tree/bush. It must be easily visible from the road.

Chris added “2020 has been a different year for everyone so we wanted to do
something that everyone in the village could be involved in. Hopefully it will bring
some much needed Christmas cheer and any money raised will be split between the
Scout and Guide headquarters fund and the Grenoside Community Centre.”

After the event all trees can be collected (minus their decorations) and will be
shredded and the chippings used to improve footpaths in nearby woods.
A Facebook page has been set up to promote the event and share updates -
