And Felixstowe have a huge natural tree in The Triangle - where their annual Christmas light switch-on was attended by hundreds, enjoying carol singers, market stalls and a candlelit parade.

We also spare a thought for one unfortunate tree in 2019 - Aldeburgh's second Christmas tree outside Moot Hall was irreparably damaged when it was ripped down by high winds in the town earlier in December.

Meanwhile, Sudbury has a spectacular tree outside St Peter's Church.
