The Christmas Craft and Food Fayre was a resounding success, with a large numbers of shoppers in attendance and searching for unique Christmas gifts. The Craft Fayre welcomed a huge number of visitors through the doors at the weekend event at the one of the most successful Craft Showcasing events in the area.
A wide range of locally crafted products were on display and included lush skincare and beauty products, handcrafted jewellery, handmade children’s toys, eye-catching ceramics, handmade cards and not to mention the delicious range of quality homemade foods.
