More than 600 people packed into the church, in Silver Street, to browse stalls for gifts and Christmas decorations.

Talented crafters were happy to talk about their impressive handiwork to shoppers.

Churchgoers and the girls' brigade also ran stalls on the day and children were able to get creative on the craft table and take part in a trail.

The event is renowned for its bacon butties which proved very popular with visitors.

Organiser Rose Lancaster thanked everyone who helped out at the event. She said: "It was a really successful day.

"It can't happen without lots of people from our church who work really hard."

Money from the fair will go towards charities the church supports.
