The bi-annual community Christmas tree festival in Emneth was a great success this year – with over 20 entries from villagers.
Different businesses, groups and organisations from the village took part, decorating their trees to impress visitors.
The festival took place at the Emneth Methodist Church on Saturday December 2 and Sunday December 3.
A spokesman said: “The festival is held bi-annually to publicise & give thanks for the amenities in our village.
“Many people came to see the trees on Saturday and enjoyed hot sausages rolls & mince pies with their tea & coffee.
