The end of Christmas does not mean it has to be the end for your Christmas tree.

The Stowmarket Christmas Tree Festival is asking for unwanted artificial trees to be donated to its cause.

Trees in good condition, as well as lights and other decorations, will be put towards the next festival which runs from November 27 this year to January 2, 2016.

Festival organisers said the 2014/15 event broke all previous records with more than 30,000 people visiting, aged from five weeks old to 104.

This year the festival was expanded from the town’s parish church into Abbot’s Hall at the Museum of East Anglian Life thanks to the large number of trees on display.

Any donations can be left in Stowmarket Parish Church on weekdays, 10am-1pm, or call 01449 774652 for collection.
