The Christmas Trees of Norfolk

THE TALLEST

Yes, our quest for the unusual Christmas trees began at the Forum where Norfolks tallest tree is situated right outside the studio. Lit by 12,000 LED's and standing 23 metres tall.
THE MOST DECORATED

Our first visit was to Rick & Carol at Old Catton. Not only is the tree so full of baubles and birds that you couldn't get another one on - the room itself is full of Santa's, reindeer and yuletide items that I couldn't get them all in the picture. No, Carol is to the side of the shot - she still had her dressing gown on!

THE OLDEST TREE
I visit Blakeney Quay where Rozamund Wotton made me welcome. I the hall, what could be the oldest Christmas tree in Norfolk. Made in 1918 it's seen some times. Although not large as such it has some interesting old ornaments and at first will have been lit by candles. Can you remember attaching clip holders to the tree which held tiny twisted candles like you get on birthday cakes. Wouldn't be allowed today.

THE SADDEST TREE
We were alerted to a letter in the Press about the community tree in Stalham. Described as a "Christmas TWIG" it is a full tree fastened to the bike rack and lit by one rope light. Chairman of Stalham Committee responsible for putting it up, Ian Mee (pictured) said they were constrained by budget and help from members of the comminity. If the person who wrote to the Press would like to contact him he'd be pleased for some extra help!
