Church fair best yet

In a stark contrast to October’s soggy event, the sun shone down on St Andrew’s twice-yearly craft fair last Monday.  A fixture of the Cambridge calendar since 1996, the fair is held each Labour Day and Auckland Anniversary Day.

Locals and shoppers from further afield enjoyed the range of crafts and food on offer, with proprietors of the Manuka Bros coffee cart saying that there had been more customers by 10am than there had been all day during the Labour Day market.

Tracey Harfoot from Elephant Ollie had a prime spot for her New Zealand-made bibs by the church doors and said that after four or five years of stalls, Monday’s was their best fair yet. “We loved the space that we had and will be booking that same one for October,” she said.
