Festive fairs get everyone in the spirit

Waiting for Video...

It is that wonderful time of the year for Christmas fairs, with stalls overflowing with all kinds of festive cheer.

Not only do the fairs bring communities together, but raise thousands of pounds for good causes.

In Knowle Green the Church Christmas Fair raised around £1,000 for church funds and a church spokesman said there had been all kinds of stalls, games and even a pie and pea lunch.

And in Whitechapel, the annual Christmas Fair in the village hall was a huge success, extremely well supported and raised £1,200 for the final stage of refurbishment at the hall.

The fair was opened by

Susan Hudson who said it was 48 years since she and her husband had moved to live in Inglewhite and she was beginning to feel like a local! Tea with a mince pie was available, and Father Christmas made a colourful appearance sat on a beautifully decorated stage, with numerous children queuing to see him.

All members of various groups who use the hall had set up stalls, as well as outside businesses, so both the halls were busy all afternoon.

Meanwhile there festive fun at Saturday’s Cockerham PTFA Christmas Fair at Cockerham Village.
