Ottery’s much loved tourist information centre manager has been remembered as part of this year’s Christmas tree festival.
Some 50 firs have been decorated by organisations, associations and businesses as part of the four-day event.
Coldharbour Farm dedicated its entry to TIC manager Phyllis Baxter who died in October.
Hundreds of visitors have already passed through the doors to see this year’s display, which has gone from strength to strength since it started eight years ago.
Organiser Carol Bennett, from the Friends of Ottery St Mary Parish Church, said: “The ideas that people come up with are absolutely brilliant. They come up with something different every year.”
