A woman from Great Yarmouth has taken part in an eye-catching high rise Christmas display at a church.

Yvonne Tovell, 53, became part of a living Christmas tree at The First Covenant Church in her adopted home city of Jamestown in the state of New York in America.

Miss Tovell can be seen in the middle of the third tier from the top of the tree, which was created for a series of annual Christmas concerts, in which she was a choir member.

She moved to America 21 years ago and had lived in Alderson Road and went to Alderman Swindell Primary School. She works as an auditor.

Her father George Tovell said: “Jameston is about the same size as Great Yarmouth and they are very religious minded there. They do the tree every year.

“It is amazing to see the tree and the concerts get full attendances.”
