ADVENT wreaths will be displayed at a Bewdley church until tomorrow as the countdown to Christmas begins in the town.

The festive exhibition is being held at St Anne’s Church to get the town into the spirit of Christmas and have been put up in the church’s windows.

The wreaths have been created by the town’s businesses and organisations to represent the festive season.

Ann Lyman, who helped organise the exhibition as part of the Christmas lights festival, said: “It looks nice.

It’s joining Bewdley together and saying this is what we are about and it’s something to put up alongside the main event of switching on the lights.

“St Anne’s is the main church in the town. People can just pop in there, have a look around and enjoy a coffee and cake.”

She added the exhibition, which has been held at the church in each of the last two years, had been popular.

“We had quite a few people come in last year,” she said.

Meanwhile, shops and business will stay open until 7pm tomorrow for Christmas shoppers.

Shoppers can park their cars for free at the Dog Lane car park.

From now until Sunday, January 13, the Wyre Forest District Council car park will offer free parking all day on Saturdays and Tuesdays and after 4pm every day
