Pupils from Misterton Primary and Nursery School were full of festive cheer after learning they had won the annual village Christmas tree competition.

The Christmas Tree Festival, organised by Misterton Parish Council, attracted 22 entries, including one made out of beetroot by Stan White Farms. But the school’s traditional design was judged as the winner by Sid Burgess, above, who is the parish council’s citizen of the year for his own Christmas lights display.
