Locking Preschool hosted its Christmas fair at the village hall in Grenville Avenue on Sunday, which was full of children and parents enjoying all the Christmas cheer.

Stalls, crafts and games were bustling with activity throughout the day as visitors kept their eyes peeled for some perfect Christmas gifts.

Talented residents including Min Noszky took along some of their own handmade creations, including knitted toys and Christmas decorations.

Children were also kept entertained by taking part in activities such as guess the name of the teddy, a raffle and chocolate tombola.
