St Denys’ Church parishioners held their annual Winter Fayre recently at St George’s Academy hall in Sleaford.

The event took place on Saturday November 7 and did well despite the poor weather, raising £100 more than last year.

There was lots to entertain the visitors and shoppers looking for early Christmas gifts.

There were also plenty of stalls, a hamper raffle and decorated candle arrangements, plus a tombola, face painting and refreshments.
