sylvester loves the trees
One man who loves coming along to the Christmas Tree Festival in St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray, is Sylvester Kaczmarek who visits from Poland.
Sylvester is the leader of the council of our twinning town of Sochaczew, and came along to view the tree sent by the council on Friday.
The council enters a tree in the festival each year, something which was started by Sylvester.
He was invited along to the festival six years ago by Pam Posnett and decided there and then that they would provide a tree each year.
"I come along every year and I love it," added Sylvester, who goes back to Poland on Sunday.
