If you haven’t been to the Winter Fair before, make plans to go next year! It’s great fun, with all the fantastic craft, cookery and floral art entries you’d expect, as well as produce and livestock – but also stalls selling food and drink, craft items, clothing, accessories, etc. And, best of all, entry is free!
