An army of volunteers who mucked in at Baldock’s market double-header at the weekend have been lauded for their festive good will.

Saturday’s Vintage and Christmas Fair saw the town packed with stalls, while entertainment was well catered for with music, a giant snow dome and a fun fair to boot.

The following day saw the return of the French Market and its wide array of continental traders selling goodies down the High Street.

Baldock Town Partnership director Fraser Valentine said: “Well what a great weekend we had despite the wind.

“I would especially like to thank the many great people who turned up in the High Street at 6am on Saturday to answer our request for help, and then again after 6pm – faith in humanity has been restored.
