Festive fun takes to the streets

Donkeys disguised as reindeer and Santa in his town hall grotto were all kept busy during Sunday's successful Christmas street fair in Stalham.

The annual event saw crowds enjoying fairground rides and browsing charity and other stalls along the High Street, in the Swan pub's car park, and inside the town hall.

Live music was provided by Folkus, Stalham's fire engine also put in an appearance towards the end of the afternoon, and a number of the town's shops stayed open for the occasion.

Visitors to the parish church of St Mary's were also able to enjoy a large display of decorated Christmas trees which filled the ancient building.

Ian Mee, chairman of the five-strong organising committee, thanked all those who had supported the fair, especially with added problems this year caused by the introduction of a new charge for street closures, and because of false rumours which had been circulating that the street fair had been cancelled.

Mr Mee said the committee hoped to make the fair bigger and better next year and would welcome more volunteers. Ring 0776 5055 039 for more information.
