St Francis Primary School's fair featured Christmas music, games and performances from the talented pupils.

The promise of tasty treats and spectacular prizes, coupled with perfect presents for both adults and children, saw people turn out in impressive numbers to support their local school.

The school choir sang a collection of traditional and modern Christmas songs with great gusto to entertain the assembled crowd and an appearance by Father Christmas also added to the excitement of some of the younger guests.

A school spokesman said: "A huge thank you to the Friends of St Francis for working so tirelessly to put on another wonderful event for our community."
