A CHRISTMAS fayre was being held in Chapeltown today, where children will be able to visit Santa in his grotto.
The event at Newton Hall was due to run from 11am until 5pm.
Local traders were selling goods while, to entertain the crowds, there was music by members of the Chapeltown Amateur Operatic Society.
There were also plans for an art display.
One of the highlights of the day was expected to be the lighting of Chapeltown’s Christmas tree at 4pm.
The day of festive fun was organised by Chapeltown Forum.
The forum is a new group of residents, businesses and community groups and organisations working together to promote Chapeltown and provide opportunities for local people to come together.
