STUDENTS in Wokingham have won a 'best decorated Christmas tree' competition after presenting their full-recycled, green-themed tree.

The competition meant the students had to make their own Christmas tree decorations and use them to decorate a tree in Squire's Garden Centre, Wokingham.

The winning tree, decorated by the children at Holme Grange School, Wokingham, managed to win with their 100 per cent recycled decorations and a 'Save Our Seas' theme, replacing the traditional star atop of the tree with a sea-turtle made of a plastic container.

The tree also features a bauble with the face of Sir David Attenborough on its side.

St. Teresa's School, Wokingham, came in as runner-up, featuring gingerbread men, reindeer and a Father Christmas in its 'Santa's Grotto' themed tree.

Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres commented: “Both schools created some beautiful decorations and we were very impressed with their skills.

"The recycling theme from Holme Grange School was unique, and it really captured customers’ imaginations.

"In fact we had so many people voting that we had to print more voting slips!

"It was a pleasure to have all the children at Squire’s while they decorated their trees, and we will be rewarding the winners with goody bags.”

The trees will be on display in Squire's Garden Centre until December 1.
