Mirfield will be overrun with Christmas trees this weekend as the annual Christmas Tree Festival returns.

The festival takes place this Friday December 4 and Saturday December 5 at 10am-4pm and Sunday from noon-3pm at Trinity Methodist Church on Huddersfield Road.

There will be 30 real Christmas trees grown within half-a-mile of the church and decorated by local businesses and organisations and there will be a prayer tree for visitors to place their own message on.

Entry is free and you can vote for your favourite tree with prizes being awarded on Sunday.

A highlight is a nativity scene made by the wood turning club. Donations can be made to support Bloodwise, formerly Leukaemia Research.
