Three Christmas events were held on Saturday, beginning with the Green Backyard Christmas Fair. The event featured more than 40 stalls and activities, offering visitors a great opportunity to buy a range of sustainable gifts. There was also a green Father Christmas, live music, family and kids activities, a raffle, home-cooked food and real ale, and even some hedgehogs! Then, from mid-afternoon, was the Whittlesey Extravaganza and Christmas tree exhibition with stalls, music and food, as well as raffles and tombola. Children were also able to take part in a variety of fairground rides and enjoy puppet shows while Santa came to pay a visit on a float. The Whittlesey Rotary Club also offered a human fruit machine! At the same time, the Christmas lights were switched on at Ortongate Shopping Centre by city councillor Julie Howell with shoppers entertained by live music.
