Christmas service for Little Melton children

Around 80 children from Little Melton Primary School took part in a Christingle service in a church filled with trees made from recycled waste.

The children walked the short distance from their school to All Saints Church, where a festive display of trees made from unusual materials is being held.

Margaret Waller, church warden, said: 'We've had trees made out of natural materials or junk that would normally go in the green recycling bin.

'One is made of newspaper, another very spectacular one is made out of rubber gloves. We've got one that's made out of bed springs, that's the most spectacular.'

The children had created two of the trees themselves, with others being donated by local schools and community groups.
