Hand-made wreaths for sale at the Holy Trinity Church in Hawkesbury

A tradition since the late forties, people from all over participate in creating wreaths out of greens they collect on a nearby family farm. They then bring back bags upon bags of green at the Holy Trinity Church in Hawkesbury and volunteers come in for a day to create hand-made wreaths which are then sold at the Christmas Tea gathering.

The community effort is coordinated by Mary Edwardes. “We used to make over 100 wreaths every year, but now we’re getting a little older so we’ll probably make about 50 this year,” says Edwardes.

The group welcomes everyone from the community to come and visit the the Holy Trinity Church on November 18 from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. The handmade wreaths will be on sale for 25$ each.
