It may only be the start of spring but in Fakenham thoughts are already turning to the town's hugely popular Christmas Tree Festival.

The Fakenham Christmas Tree Festival is one of the biggest events in the town's calendar and has raised close to £300,000 for various charities over the years.

Preparation is already underway for this year's event, which runs between November 30 and December 7, at Fakenham Parish Church.

A meeting will be held at the church on April 3, between 7pm and 8pm, when people can collect application packs to take part in this year's festival. As in 2016, the packs will not be sent either by post or electronically

The closing date for applications will be June 1.

Further information can be found on the church website or by emailing fakenhamparishchurch@gmail.com
