VICTORIAN MARKET AND
CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL
St Paul's Methodist Church, Ryhill
Saturday 7th December brought the annual Victorian Market and Christmas Tree Festival to Ryhill.
A number of Community Groups decorated trees around the church for us, and many stallholders came selling there very varied goods.
The place was buzzing as what seemed to be the whole community of Ryhill descended upon us to enjoy the refreshments and browse the stalls; view the Christmas Trees and then listen to some fantastic folk music provided by violinists, guitarists and two Zither players — all of whom were dressed in typical Victorian costume.
Refreshments were provided by the ladies of St Paul's, also dressed in Victorian costume — and they were all kept very busy!
Thank you to everyone who made the day such a wonderful success.
