CHRISTMAS is set to come to Cowdenbeath later this month with a series of events to get the local community into the festive spirit.

A Christmas Fayre – with Santa's Grotto – will take place at Cowdenbeath Primary on Saturday, November 25, with an array of fun and refreshments on offer between 10am and midday.

My Cowdenbeath will also be holding a Christmas Fayre that day from 11am until 3pm in Trinity Church with an opportunity to continue the fun and get some Christmas shopping done.
