IT’S nearly that time of the year again - Christmas.


We have seen the Coca-Cola truck arrive in Ipswich, the reveal of festive decorations around the county and trees are popping up everywhere.

It can only mean that Christmas is almost here.

We have created a gallery highlighting how Christmas has already taken off in the county using pictures that readers like you have sent in via iwitness.
