Woodford market full of Christmas cheer

A record crowd of more than 3000 people came through the gates at the annual Woodford Christmas Market on Saturday.

The day was the perfect chance to stock up on Christmas gifts, with more than 40 stalls on offer.

There was plenty of food and drink, as well as live music, children’s entertainment, a book stall, Christmas cinema and a visit from Santa.

Held on Remembrance Day, the event included a minute’s silence at 11am and local musician Tom Richardson sung the national anthem.

The day was also about giving to others, with a MacKillop Family Services Christmas Tree set up at the market for people to donate gifts to.
