Rogate and Terwick Christmas market

VILLAGERS flocked to the village hall to grab some early presents at the Rogate and Terwick Christmas market 2013.

As well as stalls ranging from cakes and preserves to craft, games and gifts, there were advent calendars on sale and visitors could also stop for lunch.

Organiser John Field said: “The stalls were groaning with toys, presents, bottles, bric-a-brac and wonderful cakes, pies, jams and marmalades.

“Father Christmas got a great welcome, accompanied by his elf.

“It was very successful and in total we made in excess of £3,500.”

This will be shared among charities including MIND, the Barnabas Trust and the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel.
