The Christmas Tree festival is open daily 10am -7pm, except Sunday, December 11 when it closes at 4pm for the prize giving.

Proceeds from the event will support Send a Cow http://www.sendacow.org.uk/, a UK based charity that helps African families grow enough food to eat, sell their produce and develop small businesses that last.

Admission to the event is adult £3.50, senior citizens and concessions £3, pre-booked groups £2.75, children under 16 free.

Morning coffee, light lunches and teas are served every day throughout the Christmas Tree festival in Dickleburgh Church Rooms (next to the church). Group visits are very welcome.

Event organiser Rev Norman Steer said: “I love the Christmas Trees. It is a good week for me. The church expresses its love in a way that people can understand. I want visitors to be themselves and know that they are welcome and will be cared for during their visit. The best part is the smiles on the faces of all ages when they leave.”

Dickleburgh village is to the north of Diss, just off the A140. For group bookings and further information tel. 01379 854245, http://www.50christmastrees.com/.
