Filey Library is offering a wide range of festive activities at its Christmas Fair on Wednesday 7 December.

The event, which runs from 10am to 4pm, will deliver crafts, a choir, storytime and a visit from Father Christmas.

Local crafters will be on hand with original gifts in a mini craft market all day.

The Friends of Filey Library will be serving hot drinks and Christmas treats between 10am and noon, while customers will be entertained by members of the Filey Junior School Choir.

In the afternoon, babies and toddlers will be joining in the fun during a Christmas fancy dress storytime session with staff and volunteers between 2pm and 2.30pm.

During storytime there will be a special visit by Santa’s sleigh, provided by Yorkshire Coast Homes.

There will also be a special guest and face painting.

A library spokesman said: “Spaces for this event are limited so please book in advance direct with Yorkshire Coast Homes on 03450 655656 to ensure your child receives a free small gift from Santa.”

A taster session on getting to grips with Microsoft Publisher is taking place from 3pm to 4pm. The session costs just £1 but places are limited.
