There were a wide range of crafts and activities on display and a chance for visitors of all ages to get involved, including a wood carving demonstration by Allen Stilcher. Visitors could also try their hand at the traditional craft of yarn spinning with Susan Woodcock. Local honey products, sweet treats, felting, jewellery, candles, rustic home wares, and much more on offer during the event.

Hilary Miller-Gough, event organiser, said: “It went really well. There were lots of people who visited from as far as Filey. This is the second year of the fair. We want to showcase the amazing artists and craftworkers in the area. We hope to hold it again next year.
