KNUTSFORD town ranger Bob Garner has a starring role in the town council's contribution to the St Cross Christmas Tree Festival, which runs from today to Sunday.

A star featuring Bob, described by the council as 'our superstar', sits on top of the council's tree.

The council said: "We had a lovely time setting up our tree at the festival yesterday. This year we have adopted an Eco theme and handmade all of our decorations in the office.

"We would encourage everyone to go Eco this Christmas by hand making your own decorations out of recyclable materials and by using recyclable wrapping paper for your gifts.

"You can find thousands of Eco-friendly ideas online to have a unique and environmentally friendly Christmas."
