Village ready for festive night

VILLAGERS are gearing up for Swineshead Christmas Fair, which takes place on Friday night.

The entertainment, which starts at 6pm, centres around the market place with a host of stalls, performances from the Swineshead Silver Band, the Schuplattlers, a show from youth group Never Endin’ and carol singing.

Father Christmas will be handing out presents to the children and there will be a raffle at 8.15pm.

St Mary’s Church will also be open for people to visit on the night.

The money raised on Friday night will go towards the cost of next year’s fair.
