Visitors on the day enjoyed music from Willingham Woodwinds as well medieval re-enactments to celebrate the history of the church and village.

There was also a raffle including a top prize of a French lead crystal decanter, donated by Dr David Stocker, which raised £100 to go towards the Stow Restoration Fund.

Organiser and secretary of Friends of Stow Elspeth Allison said the day was a great success with a fantastic turnout.

“My thanks go to everyone who supported the day. There was a great atmosphere and it really got everyone in the Christmas spirit,” she said.
