The annual Christmas Tree Exhibition displayed hundreds of Christmas trees at Rochester’s newly restored shire hall on the weekend.
The memorial trees were filled with stars with hand-written names, commemorating the lives of loved ones.
Members of the Anglican Church, who staged the exhibition, made a stained glass window from cardboard and coloured plastic, which was the backdrop of the exhibition.
A fire brigade tree was placed in the centre of the hall to honour the service the brigade did for the community.
The church ran a ‘‘stocking challenge’’ this year where people made different types of Christmas stockings to display at the hall.
One of the organisers, Denise Hodder, said the fairy doors were popular among children.
The fairy doors were tiny doors on the skirting boards.
Mrs Hodder said the theme was ‘‘the light of the world’’ but also incorporated non-religious aspects such as Santa Claus and fairies.
Church member Isobel Andrew said the exhibition was to say thank you to the community for its support throughout the year.
