A Showcase for Talent

What a talented bunch of people live in this area! At the Hand-Made in the Hems Craft and Produce Fair, the Community Space was packed with 20 stalls, offering a huge variety of goods – have a look at the gallery to get some idea of what was on offer. A huge thank you to all those who worked so hard to make this such a successful event. Those contributing were most generous in donating some or all of their takings and lots of people stepped forward to help with refreshments (more yummy cakes) and to clear up. Amazingly at the end of the day, the Community Space was transformed from Craft Fair to Church Service mode in less than 45 minutes. All taking part were so enthusiastic that nearly everybody wants to come back for a Christmas Craft Market in early November.  Over £700 was raised towards the upgrade to the heating, so with a bit of luck, we’ll be nice and warm when buying our Christmas presents later this year!
