It's always a beautiful sight, rows of twinkling Christmas trees lining the pews and choir stalls and even in the font.

And by the looks of it the 17th Fakenham Christmas Tree Festival in the parish church is set to be one of the best yet.

Charities started decorating their trees on Tuesday hoping their creations will encourage donations from visitors to the church over the next week.

And as dusk fell our photographer Ian Burt captured the completed trees in all their brilliant glory.

There will be a total of 56 decorated trees this year and is expected to raise hundreds of pounds for each good cause along with funds for the church itself through a Grand Raffle and tombola.
