Meanwhile, residents gathered to snap up a bargain at a Christmas fair in St. John’s Methodist Church Hall in Swinton.

And there was even more bargain hunting at another festive fair over at St. Margaret’s Church in Swinton.

Scores of residents attended both events, which includes dozens of stalls selling homemade and hand crafted goods such as cards.
