WATCH: Santa arrives at Ford Christmas market and greets an excited child
Ford's annual Christmas market has once again attracted a large turnout
The market, held outside under a street marquee and inside the Lady Waterford Hall, has been running since 2008 and offers a range of quality crafts, gifts and local foodstuffs.
A highlight for many youngsters was the arrival of Santa and his two donkeys.
A couple of squally showers got people scurrying for cover but there was plenty of hot food to provide welcome warmth, including a hog roast, wood-fired pizza, crispy conewich and fish and chips.
