A cold and frosty morning gave a fitting wintery feel to the annual Culcheth Christmas Market which was again very well supported
Locals and visitors could browse for unique and original gifts from gazebos and market stalls 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 a fantastic Art Exhibition by members of the Culcheth Art Group in the Culcheth Centre which was visited by the Mayor of Warrington Cllr Wendy Johnson.
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 filled the air which helped keep the cold out and 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.
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 followed by the switching on of the Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council Christmas lights.
Live from the Culcheth Christmas festivities.
