Autumn craft Fair – updates

22/09/2016 – Fancy a head massage? Or how about decorating some cupcakes? Interested in hearing about local archaeology or trying patchwork for the first time? Technology can be a headache so get help with I.T. maintenance, or bring along granny so that she can have a go at using a tablet or laptop! Watch a cake being iced from scratch, visit amazing craft stalls, taste homemade refreshments and kids will love the fun activities whilst the adults enjoy other activities….. yes, more tasters – it’s our Autumn Fair on Saturday and we hope that you will join us! 🙂

21/09/2016 – Looking for something to do with the kids over the long weekend? Why not let them create a harvest basket and take it along to the Craft Fair this Saturday to enter into our competition. Or if you don’t have the time to create one before hand, there will be an opportunity to create one at the fair on Saturday. Whilst the kids are busy creating, browse our great range of craft and home-baking stalls, visit one of our demonstrations, help us create a community fish, or get some help with your IT questions.
Looking forward to see you there between 10-2pm!
