Stalls will include cake and bake, jam, preserves, cheese, pickles, Cancer Research UK Christmas cards, Christmas Draw, Raffle, Wine lucky dip, Chocolate Santa’s table, book stall, a toy section and a Teddy Tombola, along with a children’s hair, nails and face ‘salon’.

A café serving drinks and snacks, including bacon baps and a takeaway option, will operate from 10am to 3pm.

Proceeds will go to Cancer Research UK:

    Always a nice event and a great cause, but let’s hope Father Christmas has finally got an upgraded suit. Unfortunately in previous years, Santa at the Memorial Hall has to be one of the shabbiest, poorly dressed and threadbare outfits this side of Lapland.
