THERE was plenty of "fir play" in St Davids last week, as the city's annual Christmas Tree Festival garnered a lucky 13 entries, all displayed in City Hall.

Run by the St Davids Christmas Tree Association, local groups or businesses can decorate and enter a tree. Visitors to City Hall over a three-day period voted for their favourite entry and the winners were announced at the Christmas lights switch on.

Winners of the Children's tree competition this year were the pupils of Ysgol Bro Dewi with their tree inspired by the cathedral's Canon Dorrien Davies, who has recently left to become Archdeacoon of Carmarthen.

Treginnis Farm for City Children's homemade tree adorned with preserves and pumpkins came second with Cylch Ti a Fi, Croesgoch's S-elfie Nadolig tree coming third.

Menevia WI's unique take on the 12 Days of Christmas won them first prize in the adult's category with the Good Neighbours' tea and cake themed tree coming second. Hairplay's hair tree with wig adorned baubles came third.

"The St Davids Christmas Tree Association would like to thank everyone involved with the festival of Christmas trees and the tree lighting ceremony," said a spokesman.

"St Davids is such a lovely place and its community has such a big heart. A big thank you again from this small organisation."
