A series of rides, stalls and games were put on for families to enjoy last Friday (December 8), and there was food and drink on offer to keep people well fed and warm.

Santa Claus also stopped by to speak to the children, while a dinosaur and fairy were spotted by our photographer David Lowndes as he captured many of you enjoying the festivities.
