Residents in South Creake put their age-old hand-crafts skills on display this weekend at their annual craft fair.

On Saturday craft stalls packed every inch of the space in Memorial Pavilion village hall with just one corner left free for refreshments.

Many were manned by local crafts people showing off their skills with a wide range of Christmas presents but the mix also included several stall holders from right across Norfolk.

Combined with the fair was the second annual switch-on of the village’s Christmas tree by Father Christmas.

The event, which raises money towards the maintenance of the pavilion, is expected to raise around £400.

South Creake has a tradition of practising the arts of hand-crafts and local groups include a quilters’ club and one resident famous for making large and small knitted poppies for Remembrance events.
