Christmas trees were flavour of the month at two churches which held festivals to celebrate the festive period.

Holy Trinity church in Stevenage High Street and St Mary’s Church in Aston hosted the events.

The St Mary’s Church festival was won by Sue Edney and raised more than £1,600 for the church’s funds.

The festival in Stevenage Old Town featured a performance by Big Band, made up of students from The Barclay School, and barbershop harmony chorus Shannon Express.

In all £2,200 was raised for the Stevenage Rotary Club, the church and Riding for the Disabled Association which helps handicapped children to enjoy riding lessons.
