Community come together at Christmas fair

Hundreds of people joined in the festive spirit and flocked to St Andrew’s Church community Christmas fair.

The church, on Rockingham Road, Kettering, played host to numerous food and cake stalls and welcomed more than 20 charities into their premises today (Saturday December 8).

Organiser of the event, and church warden, Christine Smith, said it was a wonderful day out for everybody.

She added: “We have welcomed more charities to the fair this year so we are bigger than ever.

“We have 20 plus charities with stalls today as well as church groups, the scouts and brownies, and St Johns Ambulance.

“It’s a great day to bring the community together and raise awareness for charities like Crazy Hats, Andi Bull, who are a cancer charity raising money to fund televisions for the children’s wing at Kettering hospital, and Cransley Hospice.

“We’ve got some great cakes, jams, chutneys, and their is a nice Christmas spirit.”

As well as stalls, crowds were entertained by a number of performances, such as a choir performance by St Andrew’s Church choir (in the video above) and kids got to meet Santa in his grotto.

The fair ran from 10am this morning to 2pm.
