TILLICOULTRY Parish Church marked the return of their annual Christmas Fayre after three years of restrictions.

The annual bazaar was set up in the Devonvale Hall on Saturday, November 19 and ran from 10am to 3pm.

Featuring stalls run by members of the congregation, the hall was full of treats such as cake and candy, toys and games, books and a selection of Christmas goods.

Alison Britchfield, minister at the parish church, said was thrilled to finally welcome people back for their Christmas fayre.

She said: “This was the first time in three years – we hadn’t had one since 2019.

“It was quite an event and lots of people turned up and raised over £5,000 for the church which is excellent.

“This money will help for our running costs and helps us plan events for the future.”

The minister also told the Advertiser that the church would be hosting a ‘Warm Welcome’ every Saturday between now and Christmas.

The church will provide hot chocolate and biscuits, some board games and crafts for the kids and a quiet room for people to enjoy and relax in.

This will be open on Saturdays between 1pm and 4pm.
