Mulled wine and mince pies, carols, Santa’s grotto and a Christmas lights switch-on, a host of brilliant craft stalls and tempting food and drink will be on offer for visitors to the Walford Village Hall Christmas fair.

The team behind the highly successful Walford Village Hall summer fair are organising the Christmas event on Saturday, December 3 from 4pm to 7pm.

All are welcome to the event, at the hall, near Ross-on-Wye. Santa will be making an appearance in his grotto at the event…with a gift for the children in anticipation of the big day.

Trustee Anthony Jones said: “We were blown away with the feedback and praise we received from our Walford Village Hall summer fair. It clearly brought people together for an enjoyable day out. We wanted to do our bit to bring people together at Christmas, too.

“The hall is at the heart of its community so we thought we would also arrange a Christmas fair for the community this December.

“We have a range of great craft stalls, plenty of food and drink plus the traditional Christmas lights switch-on, mulled wine, mince pies and carols.

“We are looking forward to a great afternoon and we look forward to seeing you there.”
