Food and craft fair to raise funds

MORE than 50 traders will be offering their food and crafts at Linden Hall Hotel this weekend.

The fair has been organised by Charity Crafts to raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance, which was chosen as the beneficiary through nominations from last year’s event and an online vote.

All traders are from the area and produce will include cakes, cheese, chutney, jam, liqueur, chocolates and ice cream, as well as pencil art, silk scarves, jewellery, bags, books, cards and home gifts.

The fair will take place at the hotel near Longhorsley on Sunday, from 10am to 5pm. Admission costs £3.
