Christmas trees made out of all sorts at festival

Visitors to Wraysbury's St Andrew's Church must have felt like they were in a forest at the weekend.

A Christmas tree festival organised by the church and the Wraysbury Primary School Parents Teachers Friends Association attracted 70 entrants.

Each class in the school entered a tree, as well as businesses and residents in the village.

People certainly used their imaginations. Polystyrene cups and latex gloves were among the ingredients used to make the trees.

But the children from Horton-based Pumpkin pre-school went for the more traditional twigs. Their tree - named Twiggy - won the competition as best entry. But there were also winners across a variety of classes and sections.

The event was spread over Friday and Saturday. Children from the school sang on the first day and the church choir serenaded visitors on the second.

Emily Larcombe masterminded the event.
