The weather turned on a cracking day for Monday’s St Andrew’s Giant Craft & Collectable Fair last week, which was the biggest event so far.

In stark contrast to last year’s soggy event, the sun was out and the crowds flocked to the biannual fair which featured a record-breaking 117 stalls.

Organiser Ian Dunn said parking was at a premium in Cambridge East around the church due to the popularity of the event. “By 12.30pm the ladies in the kitchen had completely sold out of food,” he added.

Planning is now underway for the Anniversary Day fair, which will be held on Monday, January 28 next year. For more information contact Ian Dunn on 0275 673 139.
