Parish Christmas Fayre Saturday 28th December 2105
The Christmas Fayre, which was held at New Houghton Community Centre, attracted a reasonable crowd despite the cold and showery weather. The hall looked very festive thanks to the decorations put up by the caretaker. Many thanks to all those who provided a stall, made refreshments or helped in any way. It all provided a very pleasant and festive atmosphere.
The cake stall proved to be very popular with the volunteers as well as those buying the delicious cakes.
