Families gathered in Potters Bar for an African-themed Christmas Fayre, which raised thousands of pounds for a church in Zambia.

The fayre was held on Saturday, November 26 at the United Reform Church in Potters Bar, and was opened by Mayor of Hertsmere Pete Rutledge.

This year the fayre, which has been held annually for more than 40 years, featured choirs from both Pope Paul and Oakmere Primary School, with African drums and music, as well as stalls and skill-based games.

The church raised £8,580 through the fayre and other supporting events. Half of the money will go to Katombora Church in Zambia, which is supported by United Reform Church.

The remainder will be shared between the 4th Potters Bar Scouts, the charity Act 4 which operates from within United Reform Church, and towards funds for the general running of the church, as well as covering expenses from the event.

Church elder Frank Palmer, who helped organise the fayre, said: “It went very well. Around 600 adults were there and goodness knows how many children.”
