Now is the season of church fairs and other events to celebrate Christmas.

And 54 years ago, things were very much the same.

But the opening of the parish church winter fair of 1960 had a somewhat dramatic feature to it.

The Rev Frank M Stalley donned the dress of an 18th century town crier to 
declare the fair open.

Do you have pictorial memories of fairs past to share?
