Stockton Borough Council organised a family Christmas fun day at Preston Hall Museum, near Stockton - which turned out to be wheel entertainment.

An array of old bicycles was on show, including the penny farthing, pictured, ridden by Bob Hutchinson, of Hutton Rudby. Other attraction included Santa's grotto, and carols played by the Salvation Army, and sung by the Tees Valley Youth Choir.

There was a Christmas pudding hunt, face painting, a fire eater, and a Punch and Judy show.
