Art In Mind’s craft fairs have been running in the village hall, in Crookes Lane, for the past two years, but the final one was held on Sunday.

Organiser Rebecca Clark said to the craft-makers who attended the monthly events: “This hasn’t been an easy decision for us to make, but we feel it is important we spend this extra time with our children.

“We would like to thank each any every one of you for supporting us over the past two years, and wish you every success with your future crafting.”

Many stall-holders took Christmas crafts on Sunday, which included knitted toys and framed pictures.

There were also plenty of Christmas decorations for people to buy.
