Haddenham's fifth Christmas Tree Festival was held in St Mary's Church in the period leading up to Christmas, and was as popular as ever.
One quote in the visitors' book: "Christmas is officially here. Such a lovely warm atmosphere."
Almost 1500 visitors enjoyed the 43 trees decorated by community groups, schools and local businesses.
Decorations were even more inventive this year, and enthusiasm for the event was as high as ever.
Generous visitor donations were given in support of Haddenham Community Library and the Friends of St. Mary's Church.
Visitors from Suffolk commented: "A truly inspirational display. All the artwork and lights on the trees are a good representation of the sparkling spirit of this community."
Organisers couldn't agree more and they would like to thank all the wonderful people who decorated trees, set up the electrics and display boards, donated cakes and helped with refreshments, welcoming visitors and clearing up afterwards.
Local residents Andy Price and Paul Smith were keen to capture a record of this year's event, and produced a video to illustrate how the Haddenham Christmas Tree Festival provides such a wonderful focus for a diverse range of community groups to come together.
