This was the ninth Christmas Fair to be celebrated in the High Street and the second to be organised by The Thames Ditton High Street Retailers' Association. Apart from fantastic festive shopping, there were plenty of Christmas treats including mulled wine, mince pies, toffee apples, roast chestnuts, yummy curries and Italian delicacies. There were carol singers galore, dancing in the street plus Father Christmas was in his grotto and the Nutcracker and Sugar Plum Fairy made an appearance too. The official lighting up of the Christmas lights added to the atmosphere, twinkling throughout December and New Year making Thames Ditton even more magical.
