Trees are the stars of festival

THIS year’s Brighstone Christmas Tree Festival was as bright and as imaginative as ever with festive firs aplenty on display.

The four-day event, held at five venues in the Brighstone parish, was the 16th, with around 130 splendidly decorated trees, viewed by an estimated 6,000-plus visitors.

Among the many exhibitors from Brighstone were its scouts, brownies, guides, beavers and cubs, the primary school, Christian Aid group, post office, library and WI group.
