A record number of Christmas trees are being showcased in Sudbury over five days and people are being encouraged to visit the town’s annual festival.
The Sudbury Christmas Tree Festival, which is in its 16th year and is organised by Sudbury Rotary Club, started on Wednesday, December 5, and ends on Sunday, December 9.
A record total of 98 eye-catching trees, which have been decorated by schools, businesses, charities and other organisations, are on display in St Peter’s.
Malcolm Offord, organiser, said: “It’s looking fantastic. The more people come down and have a look then the more money we raise for charity.
“So many different organisations decorate trees, it covers the whole of Sudbury life. It’s that coming together which I think is really important.”
