A CHRISTMAS bazaar helped raise about £1,000 for the Conservative Association.

The Stamford and Grantham Conservative Association held the bazaar at its office in North Street, Bourne, on Saturday,

As well as bric-a-brac, stalls selling homemade preserves and books, there was also a travelling souk.

Visitors were also able to enjoy soups and a ploughmans lunch.

Organising secretary Janice Hill said the bazaar, which is an annual fundraising event for the association, was well attended.

She said: “It went very well and there were lots of people there, who I think enjoyed it.

“We had a souk, which was quite different.”

Brian and Brenda Sumner, who are Conservative councillors representing Stamford, tucked into lunch at the event.
