TARVIN was filled with festive fun and cheer thanks to a packed annual Christmas festival weekend.
The celebrations began on Friday night with a market featuring stalls run by local groups. The air was filled with music from the Salvation Army and there was entertainment to keep young and old amused.
On Saturday the stalls were taken over by more commercial groups and it was an ideal place for villagers to find those last-minute gifts and cards. There was also a prize draw with prizes donated by local businesses.
The Christmas tree festival was held at the Methodist church throughout the weekend and St Andrew’s Church members performed a Nativity with a real donkey.
‘The best Christmas lights in Tarvin’ competition was also judged and the winner announced on Saturday.
The children’s fancy dress competition was won by four-year-old Freddie Foster, who was dressed as a Christmas tree.
A carol concert was held outside Tarvin Methodist Church and Father Christmas took his Tarvin Sands reindeer to see the children.
Tarvin Christmas Festival committee chairman Rachael Lloyd said: “It was a fantastic event and I think it was enjoyed by everybody in the village.”
