Leek Post & Times - - PICTURE SPECIAL -

THE first Christ­mas fair and mar­ket held in Warslow proved highly suc­cess­ful on Sun­day.

Thirty stalls sell­ing an ar­ray of goods were lo­cated along Chea­dle Road, while chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment and Santa grotto was in the vil­lage hall.

The day also fea­tured en­ter­tain­ment with Warslow Sil­ver Band; a cir­cus academy; an­i­mal magic which in­cluded meerkats, lizards, spi­ders and snakes; tombola; Chi­nese auc­tion; face painting and bouncy cas­tle.

Sec­re­tary of Warslow Vil­lage Hall com­mit­tee, Laura Gor­don, said: “This was the first time we had done such an event and it proved highly suc­cess­ful. It was a lot of hard work but it has paid off.

“Due to the suc­cess we are look­ing to put on an­other event next year.”

“We are not sure at this time of the ex­act amount of money raised, but all the pro­ceeds will go to the vil­lage hall.”
