A festival celebrating beautifully-decorated Christmas trees has opened in Framlingham.

The town’s annual Christmas Tree Festival was officially lit up on Saturday by East Anglian Daily Times editor Terry Hunt.

Rows of 30 trees, which were carefully crafted by playgroups, youth groups, shops, businesses, societies and organisations in Framlingham last week, will be on display at St Michael’s Church until January 6.

Organised by the Friends of St Michael’s, and raising funds for the town’s listed church, Framlingham College Chamber Choir, under musical director Tim Rhodes, captivated visitors with their Christmas carol performance. Framlingham Girl Guides provided soup and rolls, homemade cakes and Fairtrade beverages.

The festival involves local organisations and businesses, along with main sponsor Framlingham Town Council.

Entry is free, but a donation is appreciated.
