A village hosted a popular craft fair for the first time at the weekend.

The Made in Rutland craft fair moved in to Cottesmore Village Hall on Saturday.

Visitors were able to browse stalls selling a huge variety of items suitable for every budget.

Penny Stimpson, who helped organise the fair and had a stall of her photography, said: “It went really well. The atmosphere was fantastic.

“We could have had a few more people but I think everyone had picked that weekend to do a craft fair.

“The people who were coming round were spending, which is good.

“And the feedback the crafters were getting was all really good.”

Members of the 2nd Cottesmore Scout Group raised over £170 at the fair selling refreshments and holding a tombola.
