Clavertots, a parent-run toddler group, organised its fourth market on Saturday.

It was held at the village hall, in Bishops Road, where the group meets on Mondays and Wednesdays.

There were a number of stalls where people could pick up crafts, books and handmade Christmas decorations.

People also tucked into cakes and refreshments, in aid of Save The Children and the group.

The charity tackles child poverty, fights for children’s rights and provides healthcare and food to malnourished youngsters.

Children were given plenty to do at the market, as they could play with toys, take part in colouring activities and write their wish lists for Santa.

Clavertots meets at the village hall on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10am to noon, and it costs £1 per session.
