Connie Chiappino's annual Christmas Fair at Peterhead's Palace Hotel proved to be a huge success.

The two-day event ran on November 19 and 20 and a huge number of local stallholders and crafters were there with an array of stocking-fillers and Christmas gifts.

The fair was busy throughout the two days.

And a fundraising raffle at the door in aid of Marlene's Memories (SRUK) raised an incredible £910 for the cause.

Speaking afterwards, Connie told The Buchanie: "It was a great success and I would like to thank all those who came along and supported the fair for another year.

"I'd also like to thank all those who purchased a raffle and raised such a fantastic amount for Marlene's Memories, and to all the stall holders who attended the event."
