A dedicated team of knitters from the Time 4A Yarn group, who meet weekly at the Hunstanton Methodist Church, have spent the last four months knitting a spectacular woollen festive tree.

The talented women knitted more than 300 square patches, each about five inches square, including 40 woollen angels and various tree decorations.

The idea to create the tree came about after the group saw pictures of knitted trees in magazines and decided to have a go at making one themselves.

It was unveiled as part of the Hunstanton Town Hall’s Christmas Tree Festival held last weekend. The tree is currently on display in the Hunstanton Methodist Church.
