A Christmas tree has gone up in the town square, and festive parcels have been made to dress the tree.

Mayor Mike Coleman said: “Christmas this year is not going to be, or feel, normal. However, I would encourage everyone to make a huge effort to make it as festive as possible to, to support local traders, to follow the guidance and to care for each other. Together we can beat Covid-19 and look forward to a much better 2021.”

The Musgroves brought some cheer to a Great Bardfield relative on Sunday.
