Christmas Food & Craft Fair

Torrington Community Craft and Produce Fair

Torrington Town & Community Hall

Friday 4th & Saturday 5th December 2020

We will be holding a Community Craft and Produce Fair in the Town Hall on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th December.  The Fair will be aimed at local people who don’t normally showcase or sell their work.  We are looking for creative people who want to earn a bit of extra cash for Christmas or to raise money for their favourite charity.  So, if you’ve been baking cakes, chutneys or other produce, knitting, crocheting, painting or crafting and would like to take part in this inaugural Community Craft and Produce Fair, please email Anne Tattersall at: townandcommunityhall@gmail.com  or ring her on 0797 1696192 for more information.

Christmas knit, stitch or craft Competition

THE SEARCH IN ON FOR THE BEST

KNITTED, STITCHED OR CRAFTED

ELF ON THE SHELF OR FATHER CHRISTMAS!

 

The Torrington Knit and Natter Group who meet at Torrington Town Hall every Wednesday from 10am to 12 noon, are inviting people to get creatively competitive in the lead up to Christmas.  The Group who are already clicking and sewing a giant Christmas Tree and nativity scene which will be on display at the Town Hall from Tuesday 1st December are hoping people from across North Devon will get involved.

Rosie Purcell, Founder of the knit and natter group, came up with the idea to get the community involved in her fun project by asking them to knit, stitch or craft their own Elf on the Shelf or Father Christmas for a competition which will be voted by the public on Saturday 19th December and says,  ‘People are so fed up with the Covid pandemic  so I thought, getting crafty this Christmas would bring lots of cheer to people, especially those living alone.’

Anyone entering this FREE competition should send or drop off their masterpieces to the Town Hall no later than 30th November.  All entries will then be displayed in the Town Hall on 19th December from 10am to 2pm for the public to vote on their favourite.  The person with the most public votes for Santa and Elf will be declared winners.
