Starting the year on a green footing, Hunstanton residents took their Christmas trees to the recreation ground on Saturday where in the pouring rain, West Norfolk Council gardeners, Scott Pearman and Steve Percy (pictured above) turned the trees into useable chippings. “We have shredded more trees today than we have in previous years, and quite a lot have arrived by wheelbarrow despite this horrible weather,” said Mr Percy.

“Most of the trees we’ve shredded today have been in really good condition like this one, and no-one has asked for chippings which is probably a good thing because they are quite acid and better mixed with other materials before being used as a mulch” said Steve Percy.
