The annual event, held at Little Paxton Village Hall, included a Santa grotto, craft stalls, tombola, and a raffle and local clubs and groups were also in attendance. The event raised about £800 for the church.St James Church is more than 1,000 years old and has undergone extensive repair and re-ordering work in recent years, including the installation of under floor heating, damp treatment and repairs to the church tower. A service was also held in September, 2012, to mark the reopening of the church after a £400,000 restoration project, which included work on the church clock and the bells. Annette Reade, team rector of the church, said: It was a very successful event and we had a steady stream of people all day. \tThe fayre raised a significant amount of money for St James but it also gave local groups and clubs, who make a huge contribution to the village, the chance to raise some funds and let people know what they do.
