The annual Christmas Tree Festival starts there today and this year 54 charities and organisations have decorated trees on the pews, up the aisle and into the chancel.

There are decorations and lights of every colour, from the blue of the Wells RNLI to the green of Ellie's Love. There are even knitted hat decorations from the knitting group, horses for North Norfolk Riding for the Disabled and pompom owls for the Hawk and Owl Trust.

All the trees have again been donated by Fakenham Garden Centre.

It also includes six prayer trees for people to remember lost loved ones. The prayers are offered at a special service in January.
