A team of volunteers are been busy preparing for the Gayle Mill Christmas Fayre. The event is due to take place at the Mill on Saturday, 27 November, from 10.30am to 4.30pm and will be the third Fayre since it opened to the public in 2008.
“What we are offering at the Christmas Fayre is a wide range of unique items all of which are handmade by regular Gayle Mill volunteers and members of the Friends of Gayle Mill. Anything from cook-book stands and turned wine coasters to hand-knitted cushions and scarves will be available, highlighting the range of skills within our team” said Mike Thomson, Director of the Gayle Mill Trust who has been co-ordinating the production of wooden items.
“We have! found in previous years that the most popular items are the wooden products for which the Mill is well known. Ranges have been developed to include products for the kitchen and the garden all made from locally grown timber. People are interested in giving Christmas presents which support a good cause and all the proceeds from our sales go towards Gayle Mill.” As well as gifts for sale, there will be wood-turning demonstrations and activities for children, including “paint the pixie“.
There is a small admission charge to the Fayre which includes seasonal refreshments. For more details, please telephone the Mill on 01969 667320 or log onto www.gaylemill.org.uk.
