ST Andrew's Church, Skipton, is full of Christmas trees.

It is busy staging its annual Christmas Tree Festival for which visitors come from near and far.

The trees are designed and prepared by a variety of Skipton people and groups.

Among this year's contributors is the St Andrew's Walking Group, which organises a walk of five miles each first Sunday afternoon of the month.

Its tree emphasises the walking connection with small woolly items (like hats, scarves and rucksacks knitted by a member of the group), the benefits and joys of walking and the idea of pilgrimage, signalled by the scallop shell images.

The trees can be seen in the church at the carol service on Sunday at 10.30am.

This year the money raised from the festival will go to support Skipton Street Angels and the Mpika Relief Fund in Zambia.
