Craft Fair 2017

On October 14th our Crossroads Centre ‘buzzed’ all day with 20 happy stall holders, 5 groups of demonstrators and a host of visitors happy to buy the quality products on sale. Everyone had a good day and we made about £850 for church funds, 10% of which goes to our nominated charity.

As always these events can only be successful because of the hard work behind the scenes, both beforehand and on the day. I really want to say many thanks to the Youth Club team for setting up the hall on Friday night; the advertisers, especially Edna and Ray, getting posters out (including a nice spread in the Evening Post and Fulwood Focus); the catering team for delicious offerings served with smiles; the clearing up team whose arrival at the end of a long day is so welcome and our caretaker Derek who ensured everywhere was spotless beforehand and who was part of the clear up team too.

The competition entrants had all made great efforts and it was interesting to see their interpretations of the theme – Harvest. Our judges were impressed by the standard of work. Maybe a few more entries next time?

We should be proud of the welcome we extend to all our visitors, both returning and new, customers and stall holders alike. It is very much appreciated as well as the high standard of goods on sale.

Watch out for new stalls next year to include a clog maker and beauty products from a local apiarist.
