A large lorry carrying the town's tree arrived on Friday, November 22 at around 2pm before it was hoisted into place outside The Exchange restaurant.

Pictures show the moment a man slowly navigated the tree into its slot, with three members of the March Town Christmas Lights observing closely.

The tree's lights will be turned on as part of the town's big switch-on held on Friday, November 29 with the main event taking place at 7pm.
