Craft fair shows off tal­ented lo­cals

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

AN ar­ray of lo­cal tal­ent went on show at a new Craft and Pro­duce Fair.

Crafts­peo­ple and food pro­duc­ers were among those to set up stalls at the event which took place at Sut­ton scout hut.

More than half of the stall­hold­ers at the event were from Sut­ton and Lan­g­ley.

It was or­gan­ised by Pauline Stu­art and Mag­gie Earl from the Three Vil­lages Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Group which ar­ranges events and projects to ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity.

Items on of­fer ranged from bread, pre­serves, pot­tery, il­lus­trated mugs, coast­ers, tea tow­els, jew­ellery, hand knits, pies, tex­tiles and wa­ter colours.

The af­ter­noon raised £535 for lo­cal causes by the ac­tion group.

Mag­gie said: “The craft and pro­duce fair showed what an amaz­ing va­ri­ety of tal­ent we have in our parish.

“It brought to­gether more than twenty ta­bles full of hand made items, well over half coming from Sut­ton and Lan­g­ley.

“Many of the stall hold­ers had never par­tic­i­pated in such an event be­fore.

“For the chil­dren there was pa­per fold­ing and mak­ing fes­tive dec­o­ra­tions.

“Thanks go to all the par­tic­i­pants and those who pro­vided re­fresh­ments and helped on the day. It was good to bring lo­cal cre­ative peo­ple to­gether prov­ing what an ac­tive and tal­ented Parish we are.”

Com­mu­nity events this week in­clude the switch­ing on of the Christ­mas lights from 6pm at The Plea­sance on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 4, with a Na­tiv­ity scene and Dove­holes Band pro­vid­ing mu­sic with chil­dren from Hollinhey School singing.

This will be fol­lowed by the Hollinhey Christ­mas Fair at the school.
