What a night! Who would have believed that on such a night so many people would have visited the Christmas Festival and Market. I am sure you will all agree that the Church provided a magical setting and one in which we were all made to feel very welcome.

Our special thanks must go to Adam Friend, the Vicar of St Andrew's, and everybody connected with the Church, for making it all happen at virtually 24 hours' notice and to the great group of helpers who were working late into Friday night assembling stalls.

There are so many 'thank yous' to make because the Christmas Market could not have happened without the support of individuals, local organisations and businesses and the Churches all working together — but that is what a village community is all about ......

Thank you to the stallholders for being so adaptable, patient and cheerful under what must have been difficult circumstances and we hope you had a good evening in all senses of the word.

Those of you who bought raffle tickets will be aware that half of the money raised is being donated to Lydia's Lodge, a charity Lodge set up in memory of Lydia Wilson, and we are really pleased that we have been able to give £100. Lydia's Lodge provides holidays for families with poorly children. The Lodge is at Black Rock Sands, Porthmadog. If you would like more information please email

So thanks to everyone and especially to the Tarvin community for turning out in such numbers.
