Winter Craft Fair - Help

Natland’s Winter Craft Fair held in the Village Hall at the beginning of November has for some years been a great opportunity to buy hand crafted and unusual Christmas gifts, and just chat with friends over a cup of tea and cake.  But Elspeth Jayne, who has run the Fair for the past three years (following Rosemary Usher and Midge Fairhurst) wishes to step down, and we now risk losing this event if a new organiser cannot be found.
Can anybody help?  The job involves inviting stallholders to book tables, advertising, asking for the loan of items for the exhibition and making sure everything comes together on the day. There is a systematic list of what you have to do and when, and it is very satisfying to see it all falling into place. It takes a few hours each month from August to October, with a busier couple of weeks just before the event. The Village Hall Committee do a lot to help and are very supportive. Do contact me, Elspeth Jayne,  if you would like to know more about it.
