Christmas fayre still on despite road closure

The show is definitely still on - that is the message for people coming to this year's Christmas fayre at Lammas in north Norfolk, despite the closure of the main road through the village.

The Street in Buxton With Lammas, has been closed until December 17 for repairs which will affect this year's Christmas Fayre which takes place at Lammas Village Hall - on Sunday, December 5 from 2pm onwards.

Organisers have advised people though that the fayre is still accessible - via a diversion through Coltishall and Hautbois.

One member of the village hall committee, Alan Driscoll, has even come up with his own way of getting there - by taking to his boat.

Organiser Pat Tinsley said: 'Some years our little village raises in excess of �1,500 from our annual Christmas Fayre.

Every year, people come from miles around to the annual Christmas Fayre in Lammas because of its track record in great present-buying opportunities.
