More than 40 spectacular Christmas trees decorated by schools, community groups, clubs and organisations from across Helensburgh and Lomond will go on display in the town this week.

The Helensburgh United Reformed Church’s annual Christmas tree festival runs at the church on West Princes Street from Tuesday, December 10 to Sunday, December 15.

In addition to the trees themselves, there will be concerts and recitals by schools, local musical groups and individuals throughout the week.

A Prayer Tree for prayer requests will also be available.

The week reaches a climax with a community carol and gift service taking place in the church at 4pm on Sunday, December 15.

Tea and coffee will be served daily.

Entry to the festival is free of charge, but visitors are encouraged to make a donation, with all proceeds to be shared between Sense Scotland and the Bahamas Hurricane Appeal.
