Christmas Market attracts crowds to Cambourne!
Crowds enjoyed a serving of festive cheer when they snapped up the seasonal spirit at South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Christmas Market.
Around 70 stallholders offered 1,500 visitors the chance to browse the bustling bazaar of goodies for sale in the popular event at Cambourne Village College Performance Hall and neighbouring gymnasium on Sunday 12.
Among the winter wonderland of stalls were locally crafted gifts, holiday treats, and festive décor as well as a selection of delicious food from around the world thanks to mobile caterers outside the venue, serving street food as well as hot and cold festive refreshments.
Cllr Peter McDonald, Lead Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: “Once again our Christmas Market was a resounding success enjoyed by hundreds of visitors. It was wonderful to see the local talent and entrepreneurial spirit from a wide variety of traders showcasing their goods for free. It’s not only a perfect chance to bring the community together but also an opportunity to support the growth of our local businesses and economies.
"Seeing the buzz in the room, it felt like more than a market; it was a testament to the collaborative spirit that makes our District truly special and highlights the important role that local businesses play in our high streets and communities.”
