Craft fair near Highbridge raises much-needed funds for village hall

Hundreds of pounds was raised towards improvements for a village hall near Highbridge on Saturday (May 30th) when a fundraising craft and produce fair was held.

Dozens of people flocked to Watchfield Village Hall for the third annual craft fair, which was organised to raise funds for the hall's new porch.

A steady stream of visitors bought a wide range of items - from books and bread to clothing - during the day.

"We had a good turnout from visitors and it all helped to raise a good sum torwards the much-needed new porch," organiser Keith Whitting told

"It was also a good opportunity for local craft and produce makers to show off their home-made products."
