Thornbury shoppers enjoyed some winter sun and festive fun at the St Mary Centre Festive Fayre.

On Saturday, December 4 there were free family activities running in the main square, with Christmas arts and crafts as well as mince pies and festive drinks.

Families also enjoyed meeting the ‘Snow Princesses’ and having their photos taken while it ‘snowed’.

The centre’s businesses also ran Christmas stalls, with The Lions Club running a Snowflake Trail around St Mary Centre with all money donated to local charities, while JIGSAW ran a Santa’s Grotto, as well as a raffle on their stall outside.

Alan Cole, centre manager at the St Mary Centre said: "There was a fantastic festive atmosphere in the centre this weekend, and we were delighted to be blessed with good weather too!"
