Christmas came to Chirk on Saturday as the community hosted a festive fair.

The hall at St Mary's Parish Church was packed out for the three-hour extravaganza which included a visit from Father Christmas.

There were plenty of stalls with bottles, books, crafts, a raffle and a teddy tombola, plus lots of refreshments.

Organiser Carole Stebbings said she was "pleased" with the turnout.

She continued: "We usually get a good turnout and we've had lots of donations, offers of help, and people making things at home."

One of the top stalls this year was the teddy tombola, which is a relatively new addition to the Christmas Fair, but had 70 furry friends donated.

Later in the day there were carols around the piano, with church organist Michael Wall providing the music.

The event was in aid of the church.
