A staggering 175 entries for Grenoside’s first ever Christmas Tree Trail!

We were been blown away with the response from the community - as over 170 homes, businesses and organisations have entered the 2020 Grenoside Christmas Tree Trail!

For 2020 Grenoside’s popular Christmas Tree Festival was transformed into a Christmas village trail to help people get into the festive spirit whilst still adhering to social distancing.

In these uncertain times, as organisers of the annual event which attracts hundreds of visitors each year, we still wanted to do something to brighten up Christmas for everyone in Grenoside and beyond - so we came up with the idea of a 'Christmas Tree Trail'.

We had entries from the different year groups at Grenoside Primary School and lots of families, local groups and businesses all wanting to get involved and light up the village.

HOW TO TAKE PART

Walk the trail!

There are two ways to obtain a copy of the Programme, which contains a basic map.

1. You can now pick up a copy of the Programme from Village News at 176 Main Street for free (thanks James!).

2. Download a copy from the link below. 

You can start the trail from any point, walk in any direction and do it day or evening - it's up to you! All the trees will have an identification number so you can easily make a note of your favourites.

We recommend checking out our 'Maps and Directions' page for two suggested routes, 'Grenoside West' and Grenoside East'. Each route should take you around an hour to walk, plus time to admire the trees. These two routes cover all but the most outlying trees.

If you're feeling fit there's also an 8 mile long combined route (map only) that covers all 175 trees!

The trees will be in place by the 5th of December, and you can vote for your favourite trees up to the 13th of December.

Vote!
