Santa at St Mary’s Fire Station & Ropewalk Garden Winter Fair: Families celebrate the ‘Magic of Christmas’


The third annual Christmas fair at St Mary’s Fire Station on Sunday 16 December was ‘simply great’ with many hundreds of families coming with children from all walks of life, coming together and sharing presents, food, fun fair rides and carol singing.


Co-ordinated by Hampshire Constabulary and Hampshire Fire Service and supported by many community groups, the annual fair included a popular Santa’s grotto for local children. Santa’s helpers for the day were our local firefighters and policemen who, together with the sponsors, prepared and handed out over 400 presents. Unity 101 Community Radio also broadcasted live interviews from the event.


Ropewalk Garden Community Group also ran their Winter Fair on Sunday 9 December, fundraising to continue their work in the Ropewalk Community Garden in 2019. As Spring approaches they will seek volunteers.
