Merlin will make March church Christmas fayre a magical event
A SPECTACULAR Christmas Snow Frost Fayre is being held at March Roman Catholic Church on Saturday.
Proceeds from the event, which is in the church and hall between 11am and 3pm, will be used to decorate the hall in readiness for the church’s centenary celebrations next year.
A host of attractions has been lined up for Saturday including a winter wonderland grotto, a festive sing along, seasonal home-made refreshments, gift stalls, competitions, workshops for youngsters and a Christmas treasure hunt. The choir of All Saints School will also be performing.
Making a special appearance will be Merlin the magic Bernese Mountain Dog pulling his festive Christmas cart.
Merlin belongs to Anne Merill of Fleurtations florists in Fenland Walk, March, and can regularly be seen in the shop or sitting outside. The seven-year-old has been carting since he was a youngster.
Anne explained that the breed was used in Switzerland to pull milk and cheese carts.
Michelle Deyna-Hayward said plans are well under way for the centenary celebrations which will include an exhibition of memorabilia and a red carpet evening.
