THE Christmas spirit certainly came to Leominster today.

Locals and visitors flocked to the town's Victorian street market to soak up the festive atmosphere.

A shop window competition, open to all shops and traders within the town, set the tone for the day.

It included some stunning displays. One featured chestnuts roasting on an open fire and actual smoke coming out of the chimney!

Car parking was free for the day to help attract more shoppers.
