AN arts and crafts fair at St Mary Magdalene Church at Fleet resulted in £2,300 going into church funds.

Local artists paid to display their paintings, jewellery, chocolates, ceramics, woodturning and wrought iron work at the fair organised by Parochial Church Council member Tracey Carter and her mother Sandra, who has been co-opted on to the council because of the amount of fundraising she carries out.

Sandra said the money came from the cost of stands and a percentage from arts and crafts sales as well as stalls selling cakes, produce, vegetables and plants – with produce donated by many local companies – as well as a tombola.
