A CHRISTMAS fair held at a Brentford church has been described as a "great success" by organisers.
The event was held at St Faith's Church, and it was the second time a festive fair has been held by the congregation.
More than £2,000 was raised for the church through the event.
Church Reverend Derath Durkin said she "could not have been more pleased" with the fair.
She added: "We have had such good feedback from visitors, stall holders and the choirs who took part, and that makes all the hard work worthwhile.
"Nearly 1,000 people attended, with most making an early start to get ready for Christmas, either buying presents or ordering festive food".
Collin Ellar, the mayor of Hounslow, also attended the event and congratulated the efforts of the community which supported the day.
More than 20 local businesses took part with stalls, offering a range of Christmas gifts including food, sweets, toys, games, and jewellery.
Five choirs sang from 6pm to 9pm.
Chiswick-based card maker Lorna Kyle said she was rushed off her feet, adding: "I’d love to come again next year. It was a lovely evening and I really enjoyed all the choirs and music".
Food lovers were treated to cookery demonstrations by the chefs from School of Wok vs Cookery Coach, with members of the public lending a hand.
Local butchers Richardsons ran a guess the weight of the turkey competition.
