Crafters unite for festive fair



The biannual Blackwell Craft Fair, now in its 40th year, saw plenty of visitors stocking up on Christmas gifts at Blackwell Methodist Hall.

Quality homemade jewellery, cards and other crafts were on display, along with a Syrian vegetarian food stall which proved a big success. The regular Fairtrade stall was also busy selling cooking oils, dates and other produce.

Proceeds went to the nearby Hillfields Animal Sanctuary, with the 50p admission including a cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee and biscuits.
