COMMUNITY leaders have praised a member of a business chamber for organising a town’s Christmas fair.

Jenine Collier, from the Manningtree Chamber of Trade, put on Manningtree’s Magical Christmas fair earlier this month.

Both Manningtree mayor Kerry King and Martin Rayner, the chairman of Mistley Parish Council, praised Mrs Collier for her hard work.

Mrs Collier said: “I can’t ask for more than for the community to support it. We can only do our best and get people to come along .”
