The festival was held at All Saints Church, in High Street, to as a part of the church’s 800-year anniversary.

Young and old wrapped up warm and beamed with joy after viewing the assortment of trees decorated with baubles and Christmas ornaments – some of them handmade.

Clubs, businesses and associations including the parish council all got involved in entering a tree for the festive event.

To the delight of the visitors one was even made out books with others sticking a traditional tree.
