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.
