The Village Hall Management Committee return with their first Collectable and Craft Fair of the year on Sunday. They have enjoyed a couple of months rest since December and the break also allowed the Pantomime group some more flexible rehearsal times for their annual performances which took place last month. The market will be bigger and better than ever with quite a few new stallholders in attendance and only a couple of tables spare at the time of writing this piece. There will be a fantastic choice of items for sale at affordable prices, Vintage, Collectables, Bric a Brac, Jewellery, Gifts, Books, Jigsaws, Preserves and Crafts. The Village Hall committee will also have items for sale on their own stall. Stalls will also be raising funds for Manorlands and the Cats Protection League. The event opens at 9.30.a.m but if it fits in better with your days plans please call sooner as most stalls are set up by 9.a.m. Don`t forget to bring Mum as its Mothers day ,there will be lots of gift ideas for her and also a cafe serving light refreshments and light lunches until 3.p.m. We are also delighted that local girl, Bethany will have her flower and spring plant stall – Mums will be spoilt for choice. Admission to the Fair is just 50p. Come and enjoy a day out in Gargrave. Pocket booklets will be available on the day advertising all the Fairs for the rest of the year.
