Scores of families attended the Christmas bazaar which was put on by Uphill Village Society.

Attractions included Christmas crafts, musical entertainment, mulled wine, mince pies and roast chestnuts.

There were a number of stalls selling Christmas gifts, food and crafts and Uphill Primary School choir performed.

Village society chairman Stewart Castle said: “The bazaar was a great success with the hall crowded the whole time.

“The charity event was aimed at providing fun and Christmas cheer for the village rather than fundraising.”

People can still buy a calendar, highlighting the views of Uphill in aid of the society, from the village shop or online at www.uphillvillagesociety.org.uk
