Christmas Fair 2018 Success

Powburn Christmas Fair 2018

The Powburn Christmas Fair took place today in the Breamish Hall.

As well as lots of wonderful craft, art and food stalls, Santa made a visit to cheer the many children who stopped by to say hello. And there was some wonderful home cooking and baking on offer. All-in-all, it was a great day, so our thanks go to the Breamish Hall Committee for their efforts in planning, preparing and delivering a great time for residents.

Here are a few of the highlights…
