The annual Christmas Tree Trail held at the Central United Reformed Church in Bath helps to raise funds to support the crucial work undertaken by nominated local charities and community service organisations.

This year, Bath Freemasons joined in the fun by building a Masonic Christmas tree from key tools, with the aim of highlighting our aims, values and contribution to local and national charities.

The trail ran from December 10th to 18th, during which time the church was decked out with 25 trees, each decorated by a different community group, service or charity.  Visitors were asked to make voluntary donations at the door which went to three local organisations: The Bath Child Contact Centre, Bath Carers’ Centre and Headway Bath and District.   This year, more than 800 visitors donated a total of £925 over the eight days.

Thanks for creating the tree go to W Bro Roy Short of Royal Albert Edward Lodge and W Bro Richard Thurston of Royal Cumberland Lodge.
