A Christmas arts, crafts and gifts fair held at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel in March raised £338.50 for local charity Eddies.

The fundraiser, which welcomed dozens of crafty residents and bargain hunters, saw exhibitors from across the region showcase their best work, including local artist John Abbott and photographer Martyn Jolley.

Handmade cards and knitted angels were also for sale by St John’s Church in March.

A festive spirit was in the air as crafters spoke of their favourite creations and how long they took to make.

This year the fair was held in aid of March charity Eddies, which supports young people with mental health problems and other disabilities.

Maureen Williams, who was attending with her daughter Sue, said: “I love all the little details on the Christmas decorations and how everything is made with a personal touch.”

The event ran from 10am to 3.30pm on November 10.
