Townsfolk began their Christmas preparations in Market Deeping yesterday (Sunday).

The town hosted its annual festive market and more than 30 traders set up stalls in Market Place.

A huge range of products were on offer to tempt visitors, including crafts, art, clothing, food and drink.

There was a fairground and games for the youngsters and a host of entertainment on show.

Primary school pupils took part in a junior town crier competition. And the market finished in style as mayor of Market Deeping Xan Collins switched on the Christmas lights.
