A New Year Fair was held at Gedney Drove End Village Hall to raise money for its maintenance.

Organisers and stallholders welcomed the local community to browse various crafts and small home-made gifts.

Among the stallholders, Doreen Chapman sold homemade preserves and cakes, Jon Newton of The Crafty Fox sold handmade agate semi-precious necklaces and Wood artist Martin Clarkson showcased his pieces at the fair.

The event, organised by Tracey Thomas of TLT events, also featured refreshments and a raffle.

Proceeds will ensure maintenance of the building is sustained.

As a charity, the hall provides leisure and meeting facilities and open space for the local community.

It supports children, other charities or voluntary bodies, people with disabilities and the elderly.

The hall serves two communities of Gedney Drove End, Gedney Dawsmere and the wider area of Gedney Marsh in South Holland, Lincolnshire.
