Village celebrations are just pie-tastic!
Carolers enjoy mince pies and more at Christmas lights switch-on
While total visitor numbers are unknown, organisers are certain the event on Saturday (November 28) was a success judging by the amount of mince pies sold.
Kathleen Martin said: “It was a bit wet but not too bad. Still, people turned up which was terrific.
“I know we got rid of a couple of hundred mince pies plus – even more than that, in fact.”
Despite the poor weather she said the event was good: “Apart from sliding around on mud it was good fun, it always is. We’re always pleased to see so many people. People were so good at coming along to see Santa, who looked splendid. I’ve heard good vibes back from everybody about how much they did enjoy it, young and old.”
She added: “Nobody was put off by the rain which was good.”
People enjoyed burgers, mulled drinks and a merry go round, as the young guides helped the organisers by being Santas Little Helpers.
