Special open days for Christmas have become tradition at Peckover House, in Wisbech, with the event becoming ever more popular each year.

This year promises to be as magical as ever, as the team of talented flower arrangers and local groups begin their work, adding seasonal beauty to the historical rooms.

Christmas, with scents of pine, flowers and spices filling the air, always brings its own magic to the house, with local schools and organisations adding their flair and imagination to the mix.

A new flavour is being added this year with some of the National Trust house’s volunteers decorating a tree to reflect their hobbies.

One of those taking part is Christine Carr, who will be turning her love of cricket into a tree theme.

“I’m really loving my part in decorating the house,” said Christine.

“I have a few surprises, which I hope cricket lovers will enjoy.”
