Staff at the Palm Paper mill on the edge of Lynn shouldn’t have any problems with needles dropping off the Christmas tree this year.

That’s because apprentices have built a four metre high tree from recycled metals, which is now being displayed on the roof of the plant.

The tree was unveiled last Tuesday, when representatives of three local charities received donations from the company.

Cheques for £550 were each presented to the Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, Scotty’s Little Soldiers and the East Anglian Children’s Hospices (EACH).
