DOZENS of people got into the Christmas spirit at a festive village market.
Families flocked to the Greatham Village Christmas Market, held on The Green, in Greatham Village, on the outskirts of Hartlepool, to enjoy the music, stalls, bouncy castle and hot food and drinks served in the community centre.
Firm favourites with the children were also getting to sit in a fire engine, which visited the event from Stranton Fire Station, and most of all getting to see Santa and tell him their most-wanted gifts on their Christmas wish lists.
Mums and dads got to browse the stalls everything from home-made jams, books, clothes, jewellery and Christmas-themed goods.
The event kicked off around 3pm and went on until 6pm and was enjoyed by all despite the chilly weather.
