The ‘Addy Merry Little Christmas’ event featured a Santa’s Grotto, festive games, craft stalls, a funfair, raffle and hot food.

Tara Watson-Morgan, lead youth worker said: “It was a lovely atmosphere and everyone enjoyed themselves.

“It was mainly for the children and all the money we raised from the raffle and the food kitchen goes back towards providing activities and resources for the kids that live in the area.”

The Addy offers play facilities for children and young people from ages five to 16 from the town and surrounding areas.
