A Christmas farmers’ market held in Stretham raised hundreds of pounds for good causes.

The market brought more than 400 people in to the village to sample a range of wares including pickles, cheeses, pork pies, sausage rolls, scones, Christmas wreathes and puddings.

Stretham-based Pickled Pig cider was also on sale and there was a barbecue and refreshment stand raising funds for the Stretham Feast Fund.

More than £300 was collected on the day and there were also stalls raising money for Stretham Youth Club.
