A church in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, has celebrated the work of community organisations with a festival of 175 Christmas trees.

Each of the trees at Rossorry Parish Church was designed and decorated to represent the ethos and theme of charities, community groups, churches, schools and businesses throughout the county.

As well as traditional fir trees there were original designs, including trees made of peacock feathers and parasols.
