Christmas Tree Sale and Market Stall Weekend
Come and join us for a bit of festive fun on the 7th and 8th December when we will hold our annual tree sale, and Christmas market weekend. This year over 30 quality market stalls will be available for you to choose that perfect Christmas gift, plus refreshments will be available in the church centre. (tea, coffee and squash provided free)
Our friendly and helpful volunteer staff will be on hand to help you choose the perfect tree from a large selection of varieties, all of which are freshly cut British Trees. Each tree can be netted to make transportation home that much easier, or alternatively ask about our free local delivery service direct to your door!
Live music will be playing to make your shopping experience even more enjoyable, and for the first time two choirs, including the Burbage choir will be performing live on Saturday.
As usual Father Christmas will be on hand to delight the children and to ensure all have a great time.
All the proceeds of this fund raising event go to the Church funds

A huge selection of fabulous puddings was 'devoured' at the Pudding Evening in the Church Centre on November 2nd. Among them, white chocolate cheesecake, fresh fruit Pavlova, several rich chocolate treats, comforting fruit tarts and crumbles with custard, toffee apple pudding, roulade….the choice seemed endless!
The Church Centre was beautifully decorated with some rather special bunting, and fairy lights, and guests were greeted with a glass of wine and a warm welcome.
During the evening a hilarious 'Mr & Mrs' competition took place, with three brave couples competing; Peter & Eileen Devenish, George & Julie Gordon and Nick & Val Nelson-Piercy. They answered questions such as 'What is your partner's most annoying habit?'; What would your partner grab first in a fire – laptop, photos, mobile or you?' and 'Where would your partner most like to go on a dream date?'
All three couples seemed to know their other halves fairly well and were still on speaking terms by the end of the evening! As is customary on the TV show, they were each presented with a miniature clock, although sadly, not a diamond encrusted one.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported the Community Barn Dance on 28th September.
Over 90 adults and a dozen children turned out to enjoy a fabulous evening of old fashioned merriment and fun, courtesy of Wiltshire Klof. Thanks to a dedicated team of helpers, the Hall was transformed with some innovative decorations.
I have to admit to some feelings of apprehension in the days leading up to the event. Would enough tickets be sold?, would those that had asked for tickets finally pay up?, would the band appear? At 10 minutes to 7 on the evening the first two questions had been answered and at 7 pm the Band turned up ready to set up for the evening. At that point I felt a great weight lifting of my shoulders!!!
Finally at 7.30 when the doors were opened and a great rush of people entered I could begin to relax.
The Caller got everyone (well almost everyone) on to the dance floor and it was really good to see adults and children dancing and having fun together. Sandra and the bar team kept us all well lubricated and Sue, Glenda and Pat fed us all royally with a superb cheese ploughmans
As you will recall, the event was not only to celebrate the harvest but also gave us, as a community, an opportunity to share our good fortune with people less fortunate than ourselves. To this end, during the whole of August and September there had been a food collection point inside All Saints Church in aid of the Trussell Trust.
The items of food collected during August and September, together with the items that were given on the night were handed over to a representative of the Trust a few days ago.
I am extremely proud to announce that the total weight of the food items so generously donated came to just under 300 kilograms. That total, according to the Trust, equates to the equivalent of 30 food parcels, each one sufficient for a family of 4 for a week.
In addition to this, the money raised from the raffle and a small profit (in total £135) was handed over to our vicar, Daile, to be used for the Burbage Community Action Fund.
Thank you all for your generosity
