CHRISTMAS came early at Cloverfields care home in Whitchurch at the weekend.

The annual Christmas Fair was a huge success, with organisers keen to thanks the people of the town for their support on the day.

Speaking as the fair was in full flow, activities co-ordinator Marion Brocklehurst said: "We are absolutely packed out with friends, family and supporters.

"There is a lovely atmosphere and Father Christmas has just arrived.

"The stalls are amazing; we've got Tropic Beauty, a cake stall, Odds and Sods and guess the cake weight.

"We are selling wreaths, chutneys and jams and also small, hand-made items for the home."

"This means the world to our residents and we would like to say a massive thank you to the people of Whitchurch for their support."
