A Christmas tree festival is set to return in a market town.

Reepham Lions will be holding the town's second Christmas Tree Festival from Friday, December 2 to Sunday, December 4 at St Mary’s Church.

Last year was its inaugural outing and it was originally planned as a community event rather than a fundraiser.

Last Christmas the Lions club was left delighted after donations during the festival provided a surplus of around £1,000 which was shared between Reepham Lions and St Mary’s Church.

This year’s event will feature 24 trees, each sponsored by businesses, community groups or individuals who are asked to decorate their trees.

The festival has no charge for attendance but there will be collection buckets for donations throughout the event.

Any surplus money raised will again be shared between Reepham Lions and St Mary’s Church.

On Sunday, Reepham will be holding the Festival of Light, with stalls and entertainment in the marketplace from 2.30pm.
