The High Peak played host to two tree-mendous Christmas festivals over the weekend, which lit up the towns a treat.

St George’s Parish Church, in New Mills, and Holy Trinity Church, in Whaley Bridge, held Christmas tree festivals, filling their halls with the decorated festive firs.

The former opened its doors to visitors for Saturday, Sunday and Monday, following an opening concert by Flute Salad and Flute Pastilles.

The Church Road church displayed more than 30 trees, decorated by companies, organisation and schools from around the town.

St George’s will also be holding a Christingle Service in aid of The Children’s Society at 6.30pm on Sunday, a carol service by candlelight at 6.30pm on December 22 and a children’s crib service at 5.30pm on Chrismas Eve.

While Whaley Bridge’s first Christmas tree festival was opened on Friday evening by performances from Taxal and Fernilee primary school singing carols and hand bell ringers from Kettleshulme St James.

The Buxton Road church will be holding a countdown to Christmas for families on Saturday and December 21, which will include crafts for children and refreshments, and a Christingle service on Christmas Eve at 4pm.
