The event, organised by the Rotary Club of Woodhall Spa, sees locals get into the seasonal spirit with the Christmas light switch-on, festive food, a Santa’s grotto and live performances, and is also being planned in conjunction with the Woodhall Spa Lions Club this year.

Steve Gilmartin, from the Rotary Club of Woodhall Spa said: “Our Festive Fayre is a fantastic event that our whole community looks forward to each year. However, financial support from local organisations is vital in enabling us to hold the event. We are very grateful to McCarthy Stone for its generous donation which will allow us to ensure that the Christmas lights of The Broadway shine bright for years to come.”

Cheryl Bissett, divisional sales and marketing director for McCarthy Stone, said: “The Festive Fayre is a fantastic way to bring the community together to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. The Rotary and Lions do a wonderful job of hosting the event for everyone’s enjoyment, and we are delighted to lend our support.”
