From sparkling trees to hanging candy canes, Dereham families have been putting on some dazzling displays with their festive decorations.

The displays around the town have been lifting spirits after a difficult year - and our call for your photographs was met with a massive response.

Houses covered in thousands of twinkling lights, pets in Christmas hats, and even a mouse in a tiny sleigh are just some of the pictures sent in.

All the family was in on the act - from children, to parents, and even the family dogs.

Frances Hudson commented that despite it being "too early" she had put up her decorations due to it being a "strange year", and she isn't the only one.
