Food and drink stalls were joined by a range of Christmas gift stalls as the Thoroughfare was transformed for the day.

Hundereds of people flocked to the town to see what was on offer with live entertainment also being provided to keep busy shoppers entertained as they browsed a variety of different stalls.

Local charities also took the opportunity to raise funds for good causes.

Woodbridge town councillor Geoff Holdcroft said; “This year’s street was the best ever with more stalls and more people attending.

“The weather was kind and everyone who attended had a great time.

“All the stall holders enjoyed the day especially the stalls with young people on them.

“A great atmosphere all round. “

Snow-lovers in Suffolk and Essex took full advantage of today’s weather by getting outside to enjoy the white stuff despite plummeting temperatures.
