Christmas carol and christmas tree picking at Longshaw

As we approached longshaw carpark the volunteers had placed tea lights all along the path with the icy ground in the dark it looked magical and the ground was sparkling as we made our way to the Christmas tree sales.  We got to work choosing a tree from the wonderful large collection of trees they had there.  The children found it exciting shining their torches on the trees as we tried to choose one. We soon choose the perfect tree and had it netted up whilst being warmed by the wonderful fire which had the aroma of pine. We made our way to the education centre for the carol singing and were greeted with a warm welcome by the NT volunteers we warmed up singing a few carols before being joined by three musicians on the accordion and violins. This certainly added to our singing. Keisha really enjoyed it and treated us to a German verse of silent night .  We made our way outside to enjoy some more carols around the fire.  The children were keen to do the Christmas crafts so they decorated pine cones and took home some willow and paper to make stars.
A magical evening.
