Despite poor weather Exmouth turned out in force to enjoy some festive fun at the town’s Christmas Fayre on Saturday.

The Strand was filled with a ‘colourful and eclectic’ mix of stalls and musicians and performers entertained fayre-goers throughout the day. Children from Exmouth’s eight primary schools took part in decorating Christmas trees in the Strand.

The decorations were all made by the children, using wood collected in forestry clubs, recycled materials as well as shells collected from the beach.

Santa and his elf held court in the Indoor Market and were kept busy all day with youngsters keen to make sure their sure their Christmas lists made it to the North Pole.
