Create your own Christmas gifts in Downham Market

Children can create their own personalised gifts at a Christmas Fayre in Downham Market on Saturday.

The festive event is being held at the Methodist church, in Paradise Road, opposite Morrisons from 10am to 3pm.

Anne Goodenough, one of the event organisers, said parents will be able to bag some early Christmas presents at the event as their children enjoy various festive activities.

Lunches and refreshments will also be available at the fayre and there will be a Christmas quiz with the winner taking home a tin of festive biscuits.

Mrs Goodenough said: 'The children will be occupied doing Christmas crafts which are not available at other Christmas fairs and some of which can be given as personalized presents.

'They will be able to paint mugs, make Christmas tree decorations, colour Christmas cards, make bracelets and even decorate biscuits.

'Youngsters will be able to visit Santa in his grotto and enter a colouring competition to win a voucher for Planet Zoom.
