Colyton gets in the Christmas spirit
Thursday, 12 December 2013
THE streets of Colyton were bustling for the town’s annual Christmas Fayre.
Organised by Colyton Caterpillars Pre-School and with proceeds going to local causes and charities, the fayre kicked off with the switching-on of the Christmas lights by Colyton Carnival’s royal party outside the Town Hall. Carols were then led by the Reverend Hilary Dawson and town crier David Wenn.
The hall was packed inside with stalls run by local craftspeople and charities, as was Colyton?Memoiral Social Club, The Old Bakehouse, The Kingfisher and The Cobblers.
Entertainment included special visitors from Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary, a Santa’s grotto in Colyton Library, a display by Seaton Majoretts and performance from Ottery Brass Band.
Colyton Butchers and the Caterpillars kept the crowds well-fed with pork rolls, burgers, mince pies and mulled wine, while many shops also offered refreshments.
Colyton Parish History Society opened their new heritage centre in Market Place for the first time, while St Andrew’s Church opened their Christmas Tree Festival with entries from many local organisations, club and families.
