Irlam Station Christmas Market

The Christmas Market organised by FIRST was a great success. Everyone enjoyed the day with lots of stalls, attractions, music, and great food and drink served all day.

One of the highlights of the day was Santa’s arrival. Word went round that he was actually coming on the next train! Excitement grew as the train came into sight, slowed to a stop and Santa stepped down onto the platform much to the joy of the waiting children. Other attractions included donkeys, a traction engine, a robin hunt and the local fire engine and crew.

Several stalls were run by local groups raising funds; FIRST held a popular tombola stall and also sold Station souvenirs.

FIRST would like to THANK EVERYONE involved on the day and all the people who kindly donated items for the tombola and raffle. A special THANKS to Santa and his enchanting elves! And most of all a big THANKS to the Community for supporting us!
