People from the village and beyond took part in the celebrations last Friday.

Entertainment in the form of children singing from Wrington Primary School was put on for visitors, as the youngsters sang Christmas songs and carols to warm up the crowds.

Stalls selling candles, trinkets, Christmas wreaths and jewellery were available to buy from vendors on the night.

Jeremy Birkett welcomed people to the fair at the beginning of the evening, where people saw the Christmas tree being lit before the festivities began.

Also on sale was mulled wine, a pig roast and the village’s beer while stall holders promoted the new Wrington Beer festival.

Members of 1st Wrington Brownies were also fundraising through selling wooden reindeer ornaments for the group.
