Potter Heigham Christmas tree festival

Over the past 30 years Glenda Tooke has amassed more than 1000 Christmas trees including some made of brass, glass, pottery, metal, hand-knitting, and various other materials. This festive season she will be putting a large number of them on display at Potter Heigham Methodist Church (NR29 5LP) to raise money for the church itself. There will also be floral arrangements, items for sale and refreshments.

Seventy charities have registered to take part and decorate a tree in this year’s festival, which will be the first for new rector Rev Francis Mason. There will be six prayer trees with stars available for visitors to add their own prayer to, and all donations collected at each tree will be kept with individual charities. Admission is free, and coach parties are welcome with prior booking; 01328 862268.
