Christmas came early in one of the Cliff Villages as talented crafts people came together for a fundraiser event.

To help raise money for the renovation of Wellingore Memorial Hall, the committee members held a Christmas craft fair last month where local crafts people came to showcase their talents.

Among the crafts stalls being run during the day was Pretty Nettles of Navenby, Wellhead Upholsterers of Nocton and Ian Whyers wood turners from Boston, as well as stall holders with needlework, jewellery, cards and more.

The event raised more than £700 altogether which will go towards refurbishment works to be done on the hall.

Committee member John Randall said: “It went really well. It was probably our best ever and are already looking forward to next year.

“We had 22 stalls altogether and we had a really good turn out with people coming in all day.”

The plans for the memorial hall include changing the rooms that are not in use into one big room, and the estimated costs for the renovation work are estimated to be more than £40,000.

* Don’t forget, members of The Riverside Church will be doing The Big Christmas Wrap at the Source Café in Riverside Church, Southgate, Sleaford, on Saturday, December 8.

From 10am to 3pm just bring your Christmas gifts you have bought for this year’s festivities, with a receipt to prove you have bought them locally, and the church members will wrap them for you for free, while you enjoy a free mug of coffee and mince pie .

It is their way of spreading the Christmas spirit and supporting local traders.
