A church is hoping to raise money for charity and create a spectacular display in its second Christmas Tree Festival.
St Luke's Church, in Norfolk Road, Maidenhead, will be full of festive trees as part of the fundraising effort.
Rev Sally Lynch said: "The church will be open to view the beautiful decorated trees throughout the weekend, and we welcome everyone to join us in entering the festive spirit."
Businesses, voluntary groups, churches, and charities will each be sponsoring and decorating a Christmas tree. Visitors can then vote for their favourite tree by making donations to the sponsors.
As well as seasonal refreshments and stalls, children from St Luke’s School will sing on Saturday morning, and members of Voices Anon on Sunday afternoon, with an evening of entertainment on Saturday.
The event is on from Saturday, December 8 to Monday, December 10, entry 50p.
Viewing is open from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, 2-5pm on Sunday and 9.30-11.00am on Monday.
