Craft Fair 2014

The advance of Autumn means that it will soon be time for the annual Craft Fair at Tarvin Methodist Church once again. This year, this highly popular event is on Saturday, 29th October and will run from 10.00am to 3.00pm.

There are 18 stalls, all selling hand-crafted items of a very high quality. The wide range includes children's sweaters, quilted baby accessories, various Christmas decorations made out of wood, glass and fabric, felted items, contemporary jewellery, scarves in silk and wool, and cards for all occasions. There will also be framed photographs, bird tables, bird boxes and trugs and other items made from wood and recycled materials. This year, the George Heath Foundation will be running a fundraising stall. As usual there will be plenty of jams, pickles and cakes on sale plus refreshments (including the rightly-famous JD's Bacon and Sausage baps!) available all day. Will he run out of bacon again? Come and watch the drama unfold!

Tom Cronin, a year 11 pupil at Tarporley High School, will be at the front of chapel, taking orders for log delivery and selling driftwood items. The money he raises will allow him to travel to Borneo next August with 'Camps International' and, while there, he hopes to "help to complete life-changing work with local people".

Entrance, as ever, is free, so we hope you will be able to come along to lend your support and enjoy what has always been a very popular event, right in the centre of our village.
