A staggering 171 entries for Grenoside’s first ever Christmas Tree Trail!

We have been blown away with the response from the community - as over 160 homes, businesses and organisations have entered this year’s Christmas Tree Trail!

We announced last month that Grenoside’s popular Christmas Tree Festival had this year been 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 have 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.

All the entries have been collated and there will be a mapped walking trail making the village the place in Sheffield to visit this December.

 

Grenoside Christmas Tree Trail will run for the whole of December, with voting for the public's favourite tree from the 5th to the 13th.

HOW TO TAKE PART

Walk the trail!

Over the weekend of 5th/6th December you'll be able to buy a map from outside the Reading Room, the Church Hall and Grenoside Scout and Guide HQ, or from the 1st of December you can download it from this website. Hard copies of the maps will cost £2.00, and include a 'unique voting number'.

If you download the map you'll need to buy a 'voting ticket' from the link lower down this page (please remember we're trying to raise money for two local charities!).

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.

Check our 'Maps and Directions' page for suggested routes.

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.

There are four categories: family/household, community group, local business and 'Best Street'.

Vote!

Voting will take place from the 5th to the 13th of December.

We're asking you to pay for a 'vote' as we're trying to raise money for two local charities!

There will be two ways to vote for your favourite trees:

  1. Buy a map from the Church Hall, Reading Room or Scout and Guide HQ over the weekend of 5th/6th December for £2.00 (this includes one vote for each category), fill in the form and hand it in when you've finished your trail, post it through the Church Hall or Reading Room letter box if there's no one present, or click on the 'Vote Here' button below.

  2. Print out the map from our 'Downloads' Section, then buy a 'Voting Ticket' from the link below (from the 5th of December), then click on the 'Vote Here' button below.

 

Any map you buy in person and the 'voting ticket' will contain a unique reference number - please add this or your vote will be void!
