Craft fair shows off talented locals
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.
