One Fenland village was filled with the festive spirit at the weekend with not one but two days of Father Christmas visiting.

On Saturday evening Santa and his sleigh took a tour of Manea starting from outside the village pub where a small crowd had gathered to send him on his way.

Whilst he visited each of the roads he and his team of elves and helpers not only handed out sweets to waiting children, and collected money for the gala funds, they also judged the best decorated house competition awarding the spoils to the lights and decorations at 31 Williams Way.

Many of the houses in the village have been decorated, which made judging particularly hard this year, but also added to the festive atmosphere of the weekend's celebrations.

The on Sunday the village hall was the place to be for the Manea Gala Committee's annual Christmas Fayre.

The hall was filled with craft stalls, games and fun and also included Father Christmas in his grotto and a post box where children could send their letters to the big man with the promise of a reply.

The fayre ended with the annual Christmas Lights Switch-on on the village green where crowds again gathered to watch as the lights put up by the gala committee were lit up for residents to enjoy.
