Hundreds of people flocked to St Thomas of Canterbury  Church on Saturday, December 7 for the annual Garden Quarter  Christmas Market.

Opened by Cllr Bob Rudd, entertainment included the cast of Theatre in the  Quarter’s Snow Queen production, singers from Birkenhead Operatic Society, Chester Bluecoat CE junior  school choir, Chester’s Little Big Band, a Christmas medley  from Jigsaw Music Theatre and a seasonal music from the  handbell ringers from Bishops’ Blue Coat CE  High School.

There was a large selection of festive stalls and the  children had plenty to occupy them with crafts, a  face-painter and a magical Santa’s Grotto. 

Funds raised will be shared between the church and the  Garden Quarter Community.
