Almost 20 different community groups came together to join in a Festival of Christmas Trees.

The event took place at St Columba’s United Reformed Church in North Shields earlier this month during the weekend of the Victorian Christmas Market.

Displays included everything from a 1950s vintage tree to folded trees by the Brownies, and even an appearance by Paddington Bear. Pictured is the display by the Inner Wheel Club of North Shields.
