Name of walk Dalton Christmas Tree Festival 2016
Date of walk 2016-12-11

This year the theme of the Dalton, St. Mary’s Tree Festival was ‘A Name Remembered’. This is a yearly festival that raises money for local charities. There were far too many trees to photograph them all, below is just a selection of the ones that caught my eye taken in a break while we were ringing the bells to mark the switching on of the Dalton Christmas Lights.
