The town hall was bustling with activity on Saturday, with more than 15 stalls selling crafts and individual creations for people to buy.

As well as giving shoppers the chance to buy from local crafts people, the event raised more than £450, which will be split between Feline Care and Safe Rescue For Dogs.

Over the past seven years, organiser Vanessa Beales has raised £12,000 through the fair, which she started in memory of her parents.

“Organising the fairs helped me through my grieving process,” she said.

“This year’s was great. I was amazed by how many people turned up because it was such awful weather and we thought no-one would come.”

Hundreds of visitors flocked to the fair, enjoying Christmas music and tea and cake served by Feline Care.

“We had Santa visit a couple of years ago, so, for next year, I have put in a special request for him to fit us into his busy schedule,” added Vanessa.
