A Christmas tree festival is being held at St Peter and St Paul's Church in Swaffham





If you missed last year's Christmas tree festival in Swaffham, then you can pay a visit to this year's spectacular event to make up for it.

St Peter and St Paul's Church in Swaffham is hosting another festival this year, starting from this Saturday until Tuesday, December 12. It will run from 10am-4pm daily, and on Sundays, it will start from 11am.

The historic church is right in the heart of Swaffham and will be graced with 32 trees – each sponsored and decorated by local charities and organisations.

To complement the trees, Jo Pluckrose – a Pentney artist – will be showcasing her wirework sculptures again.

This year they will take the form of a giant chain of daisies suspended high above the church's central aisle.

Symbolising joy, hope, and peace, the trees and sculptures will look to lift your heart and remind you of the true meaning of Christmas.

The event is free to enter and there will be plenty of hot drinks and homemade refreshments on offer.

Lindsay Beech, from St Peter and St Paul's Church PCC and also a Swaffham town councillor, said: “Bring plenty of cash and give as generously as you can to the charities involved."
