Ely business Sew Much To Do is supporting Ely Cathedral’s Gift and Food Fair this weekend, by making a range of festive cloths which will be used to cover tables in the marquee café for the two day event.

All the cloths have been made by volunteers and members of their Wednesday morning sewing club.

Owner, Lesley Partridge said: “As a small business in Ely, we feel we have really benefitted from these high profile of events organised by the Cathedral.

“Our shop in High Street Passage was inundated with customers during the summer flower festival, and we are very excited about exhibiting at the Christmas Gift and Food Fair for the first time this year”.

The fair takes place in the cathedral on Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 16. There will be more than 100 stalls and exhibitors, along with cookery demonstrations by celebrity TV chefs, floral workshops and a festive food hall,
