A holly tree at the new community garden in Little Paxton has been given a festive make-over by the parish council and is now doubling up as a Christmas tree.
Villagers are being invited to add a decoration to the tree before the lights are turned on at a switch-on ceremony on Saturday, December 5.
Cllr Kathy Bishop said: “The council has decorated the holly tree with lights and we would like to invite residents to add a decoration to the tree. The Christmas lights will be switched on at 5pm.”
The parish council is also urging residents to make the best of the coronavirus pandemic by illuminating their homes with festive lights and decorations..
