Father Christmas was in attendance and handed out nearly 150 presents to youngsters who enjoyed a play in the snow, provided courtesy of a giant snow making machine.

Random Radio hosted the event which also saw Tom Bryans, a classical guitarist perform chart favourites from the Swinging Sixties to the modern chart.

Hot soup was provided and served by local business and sponsor Adrian Manning Painting and Decorating which helped to keep out the winter chill.
