The Love Baffins Christmas Market saw traders set up stalls and musicians and dancers performed in local churches and The Baffins pub.

Visitors were also treated to a Santa’s grotto and donkey rides.

Lib Dem councillors Darren Sanders and Lynne Stagg enjoyed dressing up as an elf and snowman.

Cllr Sanders said: ‘It’s a great chance for people to be part of the local community and see the fantastic 
shops we have here in Tangier 
Road.’

Event organiser Nicky Pybus said: ‘People have had a great time, there’s been a lot of smiles.’
