The first fair takes place on Monday, February 3 from 10am to 1pm. It has been organised by Sarah Williams of Fairydust Events.

She said: “In town I can’t think of anywhere else that offers this mix of unique products. And the church is a really nice place to hold it as well. There’s a little cafe where you can stop to have a drink and a cake.”

Entry to the fair is free, but at every event Sarah runs, there is a fundraising tombola or raffle. Last year she raised more than £3,000 for Derian House and the Alzheimer’s Society. This year she is fundraising for the Samaritans and the Space Centre.
