YOUNG­STERS at a play­group will be able to en­joy a re­fur­bished out­doors area af­ter a fund-rais­ing arts and crafts fair took place last week.

Stil­ton Play­group, which is based in Stil­ton Pri­mary School, hosted the event last Thurs­day at the school, in Church Street, be­tween 7pm and 9.30pm.

The event raised £346, which will go to­wards de­vel­op­ing the play­group’s out­door area with sen­sory toys, a play­house and mir­rors.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Jo Evans said: “It was the first time we have tried to do some­thing like this but we might try to do one again.

“It was a shop­ping evening, and there were lots of lo­cal arts and crafts, cos­met­ics, jew­ellery, con­fec­tionary. It was busy, but re­laxed - there was a con­stant flow of peo­ple. We had a lovely at­mos­phere in the hall.”

Among the stalls was a cake sale by Tif­fany Rolph, whose son Jack (4) goes to the play­group.

Jo added: “We are hop­ing to do an­other one sim­i­lar to this one in novem­ber, and an an­nual fash­ion show in Oc­to­ber, to raise more funds.”

Rachel Reed, sec­re­tary of the Stil­ton Play­group com­mit­tee, added: “It was busy but re­laxed. There were a lot of lo­cals there who re­sponded to our ad­ver­tis­ing. We will be putting the money into de­vel­op­ing the out­side area. by resur­fac­ing it and putting in more things like sen­sory toys, a play­house and mir­rors.

“It will be re­ally well re­de­vel­oped and we are look­ing for­ward to it.”

Stil­ton Play­group runs from Mon­day to Thurs­day from 9am to 11.45am and then from 1pm to 3pm.

On Fri­days, it runs just from 9am un­til 11.45am.
