A vintage and retro fair is taking place in the Lodeside Hall at Soham Village College on April 27.

Browse the many antique, vintage and retro stalls, the historical display of old postcards of Soham and enjoy a vintage cream tea between 12-4pm.

TV auctioneer, David Palmer, of Flog It, will be conducting an auction throughout the afternoon. If you have something to sell, bring it along - it does not need to be old. A 10 per cent sales commission will be deducted from the proceeds.

Or bring along your old belongings and get them valued by Batemans Auctioneers of Stamford for a £2 fee per item.

If you would like to run a stall or donate items for the auction - which can be collected if donated - please contact

All profits raised by the Home and College Association will go towards improving the school for the benefit of pupils.
