A video shows how volunteers with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust transformed St Annes sand dunes by planting discarded Christmas trees over a two day ceremony.

Green-fingered volunteers spent this Monday and Tuesday (5 and 6 Feb, 2024) filling the beach with used Xmas trees, as part of a project to maintain natural coastal defences on the Fylde.

Even the rain didn't stop the annual ceremony, which was organised by the Lancashire Wildlife Trust.

Watch the incredible work as it unfolds.
