A SEASIDE area celebrated its second annual Christmas shopping evening with a great turnout.
Eastoke Corner on Hayling Island was buzzing as locals kept The Hayling Railway busy, lining the station platform to watch Father Christmas and a snowman arrive by train.
Festive music was provided byWendy Adams Evans, and £171.85 was collected in train fare donations for the Hayling Island Hedgehog Rescue.
The Hayling Railway volunteers will now be continuing their Christmas celebrations with their popular ‘Santa Specials’, which will run every weekend and Christmas Eve.
