Steeple Morden’s parish church has held its seventh Christmas Tree Festival, featuring displays by schoolchildren and community groups.
Most of the trees were displayed inside St Peter & St Paul's Church, with one - the Millennium Yew, decorated by the over 60s group - standing proud in the churchyard.
Each class in Steeple Morden Primary School produced a tree, illustrating Christmas customs in different countries. Guilden Morden Primary Academy produced 'An Up-cycled Christmas' with decorations made by the children from rubbish.
The Mordens Scout Group produced a 'Chris tin gle' tree made from tins of food to go to Jimmy's Night Shelter in Cambridge. Smarties Pre-School created a 'Nativitree' ahere were trees from the cricket club and the tennis club, church groups and others.
The festival was supported by the whole community.
