Snow strewn trees are filled with art by Islington children

A WINTER wonderland sparkles with a colour as Thomas Daniel (left), 10, and Nicola Chow, nine, hang handmade art from trees.

Along with crowds of children from Islington schools, they were at the annual tree dressing at Lauderdale House in Waterlow Park, Highgate, on Friday (December 3).

Early snow fall this year left the park grounds covered in a stunning blanket of snow, which added to the magic for children who braved the cold.

The tree dressing celebrated a year long project for National Tree Dressing Week, which more than 200 local children took part in.

Nine classes of school children - including classes from St. Joseph’s Primary in Highgate Hill, Archway, and Thornhill Primary in Thornhill Road, Islington - each adopted a tree in the park in September and have created the imaginative art works to decorate them since.

The art will be on display until Sunday, December 12.
