Among the features planned are: a lucky dip; a raffle; a mulled wine bar; liqueur coffees; hot turkey rolls and Christmas sausages; a Christmas Cookie decoration; and Santa’s Grotto.
The Fayre will start at noon and run until 4pm, the perfect start to the build-up to Christmas. So don’t miss out on this one!
