An Autumn Shopping Fair is being held in the Beadnell WI Hut on Wednesday, October 26, from 3pm to 7pm.

There will be gifts galore for sale including jewellery, handbags, scarves, painted glass, tweeds, fruit juices and liqueurs, turned-wood gifts, craft items, cards and stationery.

The organisers say there is something for everyone and plenty which will make ideal Christmas presents.

The entrance fee of £1.50 includes refreshments, while children can go for free. There will also be a bar and raffle.

All proceeds will go to the WI building fund, which is supporting ongoing maintenance to the key village facility.

In August 2013, during routine repair work to the hall, deterioration of the frame of the building was found, which isn’t repairable, so a bid to replace it was launched.
