A house in Great Bardfield has been transformed into a scrumptious gingerbread-themed winter wonderland.

To raise money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH), Kellie Forbes, her husband Scott, children Tayler and Cadia and friend David Palmer turned their cottage into a gingerbread house to make the season extra special.

A charity collection box is stationed opposite St Mary's Church in Great Bardfield.

The house features 10 giant gingerbread men, two snowmen, 12 giant lollies and sweets, popcorn and a hologram Santa Claus near the window.

Kellie said: "We started the creation in November and children in Bardfield have excitedly watched the new additions each week."

Kellie, who runs activity camps in Great Dunmow with Scott, said EACH is a charity close to her heart.

She said: "We work with children so we know they have been through a really challenging time recently.

"We have decided to make this Christmas extra special."
