The traders of Little Chelsea were out selling festive fare for their annual Christmas event on Friday evening (December 7).

Little Christmas took place in South Street and Grove Road and included a wide range of attractions. There was a snow machine, hot chestnuts, fair ground rides and a visit from Santa and his reindeer.

Performances from choirs and morris dancers kept the crowds entertained. Barbecued food was also on offer and the pubs in the area enjoyed a very busy evening.

The event is organised by the Little Chelsea Traders’ Association every year and aims to give the businesses in the area a boost during the Christmas shopping season.
