On Saturday 23rd November the parish hosted its annual Craft Fayre at St Mark’s Church Shavington and despite the definite wintery weather we welcomed many customers!
Both the hall and the church were ablaze with colour from the 18 very different craft stalls that were set up. The products, all made by local craftspeople included: knitted toys, clothes, Christmas planters, vintage paper craft supplies, crocheted animal heads, non-plastic Christmas items, fudge, woodwork, button crafts, Christmas boxes, bunting and gifts in all shapes and sizes. Judging by conversations had with customers, many had a very successful time Christmas shopping.
The stall holders reported a good day too with one saying:
There was a lovely range of stalls and a warm welcome from the volunteers from St Mark’s. The event was a pleasure to be a stall-holder at and I look forward to being at your next craft fayre.
And of course no shopping trip would be complete without a cup of tea or coffee, with the option of biscuits or a “bacon butty”, provided by our hard working ladies in the kitchen.
If you made it this year, thank you for supporting us and see you again; if you didn’t, we look forward to meeting you next year!
