All sorts of handmade wares were on sale from knitted toys and blankets, to cards, scarves, embroidery and even cakes.

“It was a great success and we had lots of people through the door,” said Major Glenda Martin.

“It was our first ever craft fair. We usually have a Christmas fair, but this year we decided to do a craft fair because of our new craft group that has been formed.”

The Salvation Army Craft Club meets every Thursday from 1.30- 3.30pm at the Citadel in Beaumont Street.

“Everything at the fair had been made by Salvation Army members and also members of the craft club,” said Glenda.

A good amount of money was raised from the sale, which will go back into funds for the Gainsborough branch.

Glenda added: “I would like to thank all those who attended and worked so hard to make it a success.”
