Skidby Village Hall Christmas Fair …. Saturday 5th December 2015


What do you get if you fill a Village Hall with Christmas trees; handmade gift-bags and a row of knitted  Peppa Pigs ? ……….



Well,  Storm Desmond did its best to make life difficult yesterday ….but even the tempest, that was bending trees double and sending wheelie-bins careering down the High Street,  could not dampen the spirits of the happy band of stall-holders. We are a hardy lot in Yorkshire and everyone turned up bright and early ……..

The tables were soon stocked with a veritable cornucopia of  hand-made Christmas gifts; decorations and cards………… everything you could imagine…….and some things you would never have thought of !


I never cease to be amazed at the wealth of talent we have in the area …..

Knitting and sewing experts displayed their wares alongside paper-crafters; jewellery-makers.  Painters and wood-workers; bakers and jam-makers….. ( and candlestick-makers too I should imagine ….) So many lovely objects …..I could have ‘shopped-til-I dropped’ ……


Pretty soon the Hall was full of festive merriment …………



…………………. The doors were opened ……and the Fair began ……

And the hall was a sea of colour and laughter and happy shoppers, all eager to purchase the unique gifts and crafts on offer.

The popular Cafe in the Kitchen did a roaring trade in hot tea, coffee, mince-pies and cakes and I manned the Tombola Stall in my usual quiet and retiring way …..hehehe !

Thank you to all the stall-holders for supporting this lovely Fair; I hope it was both profitable and fun……..

Thank you also to the public ….the villagers and the ones who had travelled from further afield …… I hope you enjoyed the Fair and, perhaps, found that elusive perfect gift …..

And thank you to all the Committee members who gave their time to man the tea-pot, wash the dishes, set up and clear away and generally ensure a wonderful and successful day.


So….it just remains for me to wish you all   ‘Merry Christmas’ …  ‘Happy Holidays’ …. ‘Season’s Greetings’  …… ‘Cool Yule’ …

See you all next year ?
