Following the success of last November’s craft fair, Worcestershire Wildlife Trust is hosting a second craft fair at their headquarters, Lower Smite Farm, between 10am and 4pm. The event will showcase more than fifteen local craft-workers just in time for the run up to the Christmas shopping period.

Hannah Thomas, organiser of the craft fair, explained “Last year’s craft fair was a great success so we’re really looking forward to this one.

“We’ve expanded the number of stallholders so it’s a great opportunity to find that special, hand-crafted, present for your friends and family; and in a much more relaxed environment than on the high street.

“We think we’ve got something for everyone from jewellery to clocks, photographs to pottery, flowers to jams, decorations to woodwork and much more besides.”

Walking off the Retail Therapy

For the less intrepid, a short trail will be set up around the wildlife garden.

Hannah added “As well as the stalls, we’ll also have a lucky dip for children and activities to keep the little ones occupied while the rest of the family is relaxing with a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

“Our own range of Christmas cards and our ever popular calendar featuring the winners of our annual photography competition will be available to buy.

Ceramics by Paddy Smith“We’ll also have a number of works of art for sale that have been donated to the Trust to help us raise funds. These include a beautiful original graphite drawing by local artist Valerie Briggs as well as numerous watercolours and prints.”

Hot drinks, cakes and mince pies will be available throughout the day. Entry is free and plenty of car parking is available on site.
