Carol singers, pop-up shops and festive treats were on offer at the East Barnet Village Festive Fair.

The event was organised by Alison Phillips and a team of volunteers to promote shopping in East Barnet Village.

Theresa Villiers, MP for Chipping Barnet, was invited to open the fair on Saturday at the Friend in Need Community Centre at East Barnet Baptist Church, where there was an array of stalls and a treasure hunt.

Children also had the chance to meet Santa, while carol singers entertained the crowds.

Ms Villiers said: "Local shops are not just important for our economy, they are a much-valued part of our community too. So it is fantastic that this festive fair is going ahead to encourage people to shop locally.

"Last weekend, there was a nationwide campaign for Small Business Saturday to encourage people to support small independent companies and traders. I would urge people to do that again in East Barnet Village.”

After opening the fair, Ms Villiers visited a number of shops and restaurants including Blueberries Restaurant, Tops Fish and Chips and Cafe Fresco.

The fair was also attended by East Barnet councillors, Robert Rams, Joanna Tambourides and Barry Evangeli.
