Lynmouth Christmas Fayre

Lynmouth Xmas Fayre3

Everyone was in the Christmas spirit yesterday with the host of delights that awaited them created by the National Park Centre team at the Lynmouth Pavilion. As well as putting on a raffle with the proceeds going to CareMoor’s Dormice Appeal, they even made it snow especially for the Mayor!

Lynmouth Xmas Fayre1Following the success of last year’s small but popular event, the team were asked if they’d do a repeat this year as more and more people wanted to be involved. This resulted in 30 stalls (15 inside and 15 along the Esplanade) providing a range of goods and activities, from arts, crafts, books, pottery, woodcraft and jewellery to food stalls, Christmas trees, Christmas wreaths and the contents of a seaside gift shop!

Lynmouth Xmas Fayre2Officially declared open by Suzette Hibbert, Mayor of Lynton & Lynmouth, there was plenty of family friendly things to see and do, including the elf workshop (where children made Christmas tree decorations and cards) and the chance to visit Santa whilst being serenaded by the Lyntones Ladies’ choir!

Proceeds from the raffle, plus the £5 hire fee for all the stalls were donated to CareMoor for Exmoor to support the Dormice boxes appeal.
