In photos: Three-day fundraising craft fair held in Brent Knoll

Hundreds of people attended a three-day charity craft fair held in Brent Knoll at the weekend.

The event was held at Sanders Garden World in aid of the Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service.

Visitors were able to watch lace making and woodturning demonstrations and see a wide range of gifts and merchandise from local craft makers.

Peter Burks, General Manager of the centre, said: "The fair was a good opportunity for people looking for unique gift ideas for someone special this Valentine’s Day. There were over 30 stalls selling a range of hand-crafted items including glassware, soaps and sculptures."

Allan Roberts, one of the charity’s volunteers who organised the event, said there had been a good number of vistors throughout the weekend and he thanked the public for their support. Freewheelers EVS transports items on especially adapted motorcycles from hospital to hospital in Somerset and beyond.
