The annual Christmas Tree Festival at Fenstanton United Reformed Church played host to around 104 trees some big and others knitted.

Church elder Jean Ding said: “The festival went very well. We had 32 organisations from in and around the village who entered the festival – there were Christmas trees all over the place.”

Fenstanton Pre-School made a Christmas tree entirely of egg boxes, Fringe in the Fen made theirs from books and the Fenstanton Knitters and Natters group made over 200 ornaments for their tree.

In total the festival raised £425 for the Arthur Rank Hospice, the Special Care Baby Unit at Hinchingbrooke and the church.
