Kept behind a penguin barrier, the penguins’ handlers were inundated with lots of inquisitive children asking questions.
The penguins are named after the cold water current they swim in, which in turn is named after explorer Alexander von Humboldt.
Churchwarden Gavin Jackman, said: “This was a record breaking Christmas Bazaar for St Mary’s, more than 2,000 people visited us over the two days. From babes in arms to 90-year-old identical twins there was something for everyone.”
As well as nearly 50 games and stalls, visitors feasted on roast chestnuts whilst children danced to the music from the Dutch street organ.
