Santa and his elves added a touch of Christmas magic to Mulbarton's festive fair.
Two playgroups in Mulbarton – Puddleducks and Peacocks – joined forces for the event at the village hall, which featured games including 'pluck the turkey', hook-a-cracker, snowball skittles, a lucky dip and 'drop a coin on Rudolph's nose'.
Playgroup staff dressed as Father Christmas and elves for the December 4 fair, and youngsters got to visit Santa's Grotto and pass on their requests for Christmas.
Puddleducks fair organiser Joanne Doughty said: 'Helen Lungley, the Peacocks' organiser, and I were proud to join together to create a big Christmas event for the village.
'We were able to fill all three rooms with a mixture of local business stalls, games and refreshments. Plus our Santa's grotto on the village hall stage.

Businesses set up stalls selling everything from bunting to jewellery, Christmas gifts, children's books, pamper items, homemade crafts and gifts.
