CRAFT FAIR 2010

If the craft stalls were sadly missing Helen Bisset this year, their loss was the Kitchen's gain. However, finally, after a seemingly endless succession of bacon rolls, coffee, tea and assorted other forbidden fare, there was perhaps a slight feeling that possibly running a stall was less exhausting! I can't vouch for that, not being a crafter, but from whatever perspective one views the occasion the craft fair is always  great fun, yes, even in the heat of the Kitchen and even when the water mysteriously goes off the boil and the washing mashine threatens to desert its post. Those of us who live at Broadshaw already know that every community should have one and so it proved again as Alan Tuffs calmly put it all right and normal service was quickly resumed.

From the hatch I could only get a limited view of the stalls and the busy punters enjoying themselves, but when I was released for good behaviour I was able to wander and appreciate the wealth of local skills and talent which makes this occasion such a highlight of the Harburn calendar. I was very grateful to Alasdair MacEwan for filling my need for a sugar rush with his free samples of Delightful Chocolates.Good luck to him and to all the enterprising entrepreneurs who filled the hall with a Pre Chrismas buzz to get us all in the mood. Good job it wasn't a week later!
