Leiston: Christmas Fayre a huge success
FESTIVE revellers wrapped up warm and turned out in force for a seasonal celebration.
Around 400 people are thought to have gone along to the Leiston Christmas Fayre on Saturday.
The event centred around the town’s Long Shop Museum and there were a number of stalls and activities for people to enjoy.
Father Christmas also made an appearance and young and old took part in a treasure hunt made up of clues - created by the local Brownies - from festive shop windows.
There was also music from the Leiston Royal British Legion Training Band.
