Lots of people enjoyed browsing handmade gifts at Cawston’s first craft fair on Sunday.

It was held in the new Community Hall and visitors also had the chance to enjoy a slice of cake and enter a raffle.

The event was organised by Sarah Geddes, who owns local business Gingerbread Lane.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Sarah said: “We run a tea room in Cawston Community Hall as well as supplying gingerbread to local cafes and I could see that Cawston really needed some community events to help bring people together.

“I have attended lots of events selling my gingerbread and understood how to run an event like this so I thought that I should give it a go, especially as I live in Cawston.

When asked how the day went, she added: “I was really pleased. We had over 150 visitors, we sold out of homemade cake and raffle tickets, we helped raise the profile of rugby autism network (and some money) and of course awareness of autism which is really important to me personally.

“We have another fair, a Christmas one, booked for Sunday, November 20 which will be bigger and better.”
