A NEW Christmas market will launch in Barry this weekend.

The Mayor’s Christmas Market will be from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, November 25, at the Cemetery Approach Community Centre.

The market will showcase local arts and crafts makers – it’s free to attend and there will be hot drinks and festive refreshments sold on the day.

Money made from the refreshments will support the Mayor of Barry’s chosen charities: Mind in the Vale and 2Wish.
