The Market Place will once again be filled with Christmas trees, music, activities and a wide range of stalls selling all sorts of goodies, including Christmas gift ideas and festive food.
Santa will be joining us and looking forward to chatting to the children in his grotto, where he’ll be handing out presents – but only if they’ve been good.
Children’s entertainment is being provided throughout the afternoon from Graham Andrew of Funforce.
ATMs can be found at the Spar, Ollands Road, and the Co-op, Station Road. Please keep dogs on a short lead to save people tripping over them.

The church will be filled with 26 Christmas trees, sponsored and decorated by local businesses, individuals and groups, and visitors will be invited to vote for their favourite tree.
The Christmas tree festival is organised by Reepham Lions Club and entry is free, although visitors will have the opportunity to make donations, which will be shared equally between Reepham Lions and St Mary’s.
