Made in Rutland Spring Craft Fair raises funds for local groups

Have your say

Visitors from all over Rutland turned out for an annual craft fair which raised £160 for two local groups.

The Made in Rutland Spring Craft Fair was held at Whissendine Village Hall on Saturday in aid of Whissendine Rainbows and Brownies.

Stall holders from Rutland sold a range of handmade gifts at the event, as well as cakes, tea and coffee. A raffle was also held to raise additional funds.

Whissendine Rainbow leader Alex Martin said: “We are very grateful to all the stall holders and shoppers at the Made in Rutland Craft Fair, and the rainbow, brownie and guide helpers as well as parents and everyone who baked and attended.

“This is a wonderful result, especially for small village units like our own.”
