Hunstanton Christmas trees recycled to give message of hope and love

Hunstanton's Christmas trees have been given a new lease of life after they were transformed to create messages of friendship, kindness, love, peace and hope.

Organised by Hunstanton and District Festival of Arts (HDFA) the wooden trees first made their debut on the Upper Green covered in Christmas baubles.

Now, the tinsel has been replaced with brightly coloured flowers, butterflies and dragonflies made from recycled items, with each tree offering a unique message.

Members of the HDFA made the decorations during lockdown, with youngsters from Hunstanton Primary School hand-painting 30 wooden hearts which were added to the Love tree on Valentine's Day.

Chair of the HDFA Christine Earnshaw said: “We had such a good reaction to our Christmas Tree Forest, we thought it would be nice to continue to feature the trees on the Upper Green in a positive and upbeat way and give our local residents a bit of a lift.

“We’d love as many people as possible to visit on their daily walk and take a few moments to enjoy them while they can as the trees will only be on the Upper Green flower bed until the beginning of March - so please come and see them if you can.

"If you can’t get out, there are photos of the trees along with information about the HDFA on our website www.festival3.com.”
