The spectacular sight of 90 decorated Christmas trees packed into Fakenham Parish church is expected to raise at least £20,000 for charity.

Visitors have travelled from as far as France to see the trees and contribute to the donations for 76 charities.

Rev Adrian Bell said: “There is no doubt this is the best Christmas tree festival we have ever done. I feel it is a wonderful experience that something has grown and affected not only the charities but the town. It puts Fakenham on the map.” The festival, which has raised £250,000 for charity over the last 13 years, is open every day until Thursday from 10am to 8pm. For more, see Wensum on page 20.
