Last week we were delighted to welcome Bethany to the Flea Market and Craft Fair. Bethany is a Village girl who recently closed her florists shop in Gargrave. She is a welcome addition to our regular stallholders and will be selling a great selection of plants, flowers and floral gifts outside the Hall when Collectable  and Book Fairs are held. We are hoping she will be there on Saturday , other commitments allowing. Please come along and see the Christmas wreaths and plants for both the home and garden.
