Organiser Jenni Munn assisted in the event by Ann Fee said: “I am just delighted with the turnout once again. Everyone has been so helpful. The stallholders as usual made a huge effort and there was quite a large crowd enjoying the atmosphere.

“Upstairs we had the St Patrick’s Church Choir singing Christmas carols and on the  ground floor the Apex Jazz Band played their lively music  helping to set a great atmosphere.

“It is a superb opportunity for small businesses to show off their craft wares and we had quite a selection. We are going through tough times just now and really all charities are feeling the pinch but we have to do what we can to support this cause.

“We held a mini raffle and it was heart-warming to see some stalls give all their takings or make donations. The support all round was just tremendous.

“I start organising this event around June as it take that long to get it all together. We had 23 stalls in total. Noel Killen, the owner of The Mill, and his family have been very helpful in allowing us to run this event.

“I’d also like to extend my thanks to to Magnakata for lending their teepee for the day. This allowed us to put in another four stalls which was very useful. And of course a big thank you to all who supported the event and made donations”.
