Families could make the most of a wide range of activities at the event – organised by the Baldock events forum and the town’s Rotary club – including a Baldock bake-off competition, stocking decorating and Santa’s Grotto.

The events forum took to Facebook and said: “A massive thank you to everyone involved in the fair, including the hard working team who put it all together and took it down, the great local bands and talent that performed, and those who turned up despite the terrible weather.
