THEY'RE dreaming of a Wyke Christmas in a Weymouth community after a festive event was held.

Hundreds of people wrapped up warm and headed down to Old Wyke Square's Christmas Fayre on Sunday.

Charities and local businesses ran stalls to raise money for good causes and to spread some Christmas cheer.

There was live music from The Wyke Ukedelics, Wessex Singers, Sophie Barnes Singers and school choirs as well as a children's fancy dress competition, judged by the new Rector of All Saints Church, Brother Alastair Kay.

Father Christmas himself had his grotto in Wyke Social Club with two of his elves and Christmas music rang out across the square.

Sue-Jane Smith from Ladies in Wey-ting said: "This year we have a tombola, a lucky dip and a silent auction.

"We do this every year for many years to raise money for the Toy Appeal. If there is any money left over we are going to split it between the Veterans Hub and the MV Freedom because they are good local charities.

"This event is the highlight of our year really, it's such a wonderful day.

"It's so cheerful and we are doing very well so far."

Matthew Farnham brought his daughter Clementine down to the square so she could perform with the Sophie Barnes Singers, who sang Christmas songs to entertain the crowds on the stage.

He said: "We have had a great time, we went to see Anna and Elsa and we have some mince pies to eat.

"It's the first time we have come to this but it's lovely, very nice."

David and Carole Lawrence from All Sorts had a stall the event. David said: "It's been great and this is our first time here.

"The weather has helped a lot and there's certainly a lot of people around all dressing up so it's nice."
