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.
