People of Locking Parklands housing estate have kick-started the festive season with a Christmas market.

More than 300 people enjoyed stalls where ginger bread making, face painting and homemade Christmas decorations were on offer on November 28.

People even got the chance to join-in with Christmas carollers from the Parkland Singers choir and walked the parkland trail, which takes walkers past some of the 40 trees that have been lit up for Christmas across the estate.
