VIDEO: A cold nip in the air gave a fitting wintery feel to the Culcheth Christmas Market to start the festive season which proved popular and well supported.
Locals and visitors were able to browse for unique and original gifts from gazebos and market stalls linking the two Gift and Craft Fayres taking place in the Parish and Methodist Halls. On offer were jewellery, collectables, antiques, cakes, fabrics, crafts, gift wrapping, boxes, ornaments, flowers, toys and more. Stalls and refreshments were also available in the Scout Hut and there was an Art Exhibition in the Culcheth Centre.
Keeping people entertained throughout the day were children’s roundabouts and crafts, music, Bell ringing, carol singing and a fabulous barrel organ. The aroma of mulled wine and hot cider filled the air which helped keep the cold out there were purveyors of traditional festive fayre such a mince pies, roasted chestnuts and lots of other yuletide treats. Radio Warrington provided music and entertainment throughout the day.
In the Methodist Church was a photo booth set up by MAD Culcheth, a group of local people, youth workers and sports coaches on a mission to make a difference to the lives of young people in Culcheth.
The event was organised by Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council. Birchwood Lions were out in force, bringing Santa and his Grotto to the Methodist Church
The day was brought to a fitting climax with carols from Culcheth Village Choir followed by the Mayor of Warrington, Cllr. Karen Mundry switching on the Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council Christmas lights.
A fantastic, festive feast of fun was had by all.
Live from Culcheth Christmas Markets where the Culcheth Village Choir are entertaining us royally.
