Putting up your Christmas decorations might seem a distant prospect, but plans are already being put in place for a market town’s festive tree extravaganza.

The Fakenham Christmas Tree Festival (CTF) is set to return in 2022, with organisers asking charities to come forward to its launch meeting on April 6 at the parish church.

The launch meeting will set out the procedures and explain changes being made for this year, and be a chance to ask questions and grab an application form.

Fakenham Christmas Tree Festival features trees from 42 different charities.

In 2021 the festival raised £27,000 for both the charities and church - though it was touch and go thanks to the late arrival of the trees.

This year, application forms will not be issued electronically, and completed forms must be returned as hard copies.

The CTF desk will be open every Thursday at the church between 10.30am to 11.30am from April 21 for the return of forms or to answer any questions.

The closing date for applications is May 27.
