Victorian church bazaar

St Mary’s Church in Greasley will be holding its annual Victorian Christmas fair next weekend.

In true Victorian style, there will be hot chestnuts, fruit punch and all the stallholders will be dressed in costume.

There will be cakes, a tombola, pickles and chutneys, toys, traidcraft goods and hundreds of second-hand books.

There will be music from the Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Brass Band and bacon cobs and mince pies will be available all day.

The market will be opened by the deputy mayor of Broxtowe and Greasley councillor, Margaret Handley.

Taking place in the church hall from 10am, the market is in its fourth year and will help raise money for the church roof after lead was stolen off it last year.
