  • Botley Festival of Angels

    Friday 6th December at 9.00am

    In 2017 we held our very first Christmas Tree Festival  and  filled the church with Christmas Trees large and small, all decorated by different clubs, societies, organisations and  businesses to reflect the creativity of their members and the activities they represented in the village.

    Following the success of this event,  we have invited  our 2017 participants, plus a few new ones, to test the imagination of their members once again  to create an angel of any size (the larger the better for display) and in any medium. There is just one rule. All angels must have wings!

    However this year we should also like to extend our invitation to participate to a wider audience in the village. How creative are you, your family, friends or neighbours?  

    How about entering

        •    a Family angel,
        •    a Neighbourhood angel,
        •    a Friendship Group angel or
        •    an Individual angel?

    It’s not a competition. There’s no charge to enter. It’s for the fun of seeing our village come together to celebrate our creativity and the variety of what we have on offer in Botley. So why not join in?

    Most importantly, do put the date in your diary now, to be sure to come and see the finished result!

    For details of how to enter, please contact Lynn Gosden:
