Christmas trees are being decorated today as part of the Cirencester Christmas Tree Festival.

Forty trees arrived at St John Baptist Church from Bathurst Estate yesterday, and sponsors are now busy decorating them in their own styles.

The trees will be lit up each today from 10am-4pm until December 10.

On November 30, the day the town's Christmas lights are being switched on, all the other lights in the church will be turned off to make the most of the display.
