Craft fair at hall used in the Great War

A craft fair is taking place next month to raise funds for a village hall, which is believed to have been used for soldiers in Alnwick during the First World War.

The event, at Boulmer Village Hall, is being held on Saturday, December 6, with tables available for anyone who wants to sell craft items, and for the public to come along and buy some extra Christmas treats.

It is thought that the hall was one of the huts originally used in the Pastures when soldiers used the grounds to camp out during the Great War.

The event, from 10am to 3pm, is aiming to raise money to keep the facility open for use by the community. Entry to the craft fair is free.

Refreshments and cakes will be on offer and alongside the craft stalls there will also be pottery painting from Rainbow Pottery Studio based at Acklington.
