A total of 1,287 trees were displayed and used in Martham Methodist Church last weekend for the annual Christmas Tree Festival.

Hundreds of visitors enjoyed the display of alternative trees and traditional refreshments.

The quilt was won by Margaret Morris and the hamper by Elliott Brooke. The raffle was drawn and distributed.

Finn of Thurne was the first out of the hat guessing the correct number of trees.

An amazing figure of £2,374 was raised over the weekend for the Methodist Church and the Circuit. Organisers thanked to everyone who helped Glenny Tooke over the weekend.
