Festive crafts, gifts and cakes were enjoyed at the Friends of St Cross’ Christmas Bazaar on Saturday.
Families had the chance to meet Santa and get into the Christmas spirit with various stalls and activities.
The event, held at Arnold House in Elsee Road, was officially opened by Rugby’s Commonwealth Games medallist Jamie-Lea Winch.
There was a variety of stalls selling crafts, gifts, jewellery, toys, cakes, books and bric-a-brac.
Rugby Mayor Cllr Ramesh Srivastava, who has chosen to support the Diamond Jubilee Appeal during his year in office, welcomed visitors to the event last Saturday. Tony Cousins, vice president of the Friends, said: “We would like to thank all who attended and the volunteers who gave so generously of their time to make this happen.
“A special thank you to Arnold House for hosting the event and to the stall holders who came along and supported us with their great variety of crafts and gifts.”
He added: “This was the first time in recent years that we have held such an event and we look forward to other public events in our forthcoming Jubilee year which will widen the charity’s connection with the community.”
Thanks to a great turnout, the Diamond Jubilee Appeal is rapidly approaching the halfway point in its bid to raise £60,000.
