An autumn fair raised £500 for a church in East Cambridgeshire. 

With a wide range of goods on sale, from upholstered chairs to small needle-felted mice, there was something for all tastes and budgets at St Andrew's Church in Witchford.

There were also raffles, a bottle tombola and a 'name the reindeer' competition for children.  

Refreshments were on hand throughout the day and both the church and the church hall were buzzing with visiting people and families.

A craft activity for the children gave them the opportunity to make lollipop pumpkins and both children and adults could try their hand at drumming, courtesy of the Witchford Drum Circle.   

Susan Maud, organizer of the craft fair, said: “The success of the fair was largely due to the generosity of volunteers giving their time, and of local people and businesses making donations.   

"Although the main aim was to provide the village with something that everyone could enjoy, more money was raised than ever before with the total in the region of £500 going to the church.   

"The next fair is planned for March 2024, proof that these craft fairs are set to become an established part of Witchford village life."
