In pictures:  Christmas bazaar at St Mark's Crescent Methodist Church

Stocking-fillers galore were on offer at a fundraising Christmas bazaar held by the St Mark's Crescent Methodist Church on Saturday.


Stationery, sweets, toys, and bric-a-brac were among the host of items snapped up by shoppers as the church raised about £1,200 at this year's event.

About 100 people packed in for the morning bazaar to hear a festive performance from pupils from All Saints Junior School to get the day underway, with dozens more stopping by as the morning progressed.

A cake stall raised about £250, while many items sold out in about an hour-and-a-half.

Church treasurer and organiser Ed Filmore said the money raised was a record-breaking amount in the church's diamond jubilee year.

He added: "We just had a brilliant morning. I hope everyone enjoyed it. There was a very friendly buzz around the hall."

The money will be split between the church and Alzheimers Dementia Support (ADS).
