LYMM’S fourth annual Christmas tree festival welcomed hundreds of visitors in its busiest year to date.

Residents from across Warrington descended on St Mary’s Church, on Rectory Lane, to see the 40 decorated Christmas trees on display.

Members of the community had spent a lot of time creating unique trees for the occasion, including Lymm town council’s poignant tree in honour of 11 men who died in the First World World, complete with presents for each fallen soldier. 

Children from Cherry Tree Primary School, Ravenbank Primary School, Statham Primary School and Lymm High School took part in the festivities on Friday. 

Musical entertainment was provided by Lymm Pop Choir, Lymm Golf Club Ladies’ Ukulele Band, Lymm and District Chorus and the Serenade singers. 

The Rev Beverley Jameson was amazed at how popular the festival had become. 
She said: “It was just heaving. 

“Normally Sunday is quieter than the rest of the weekend but people just kept arriving. It was a wonderful community event.”
