A CRAFT and beauty fair is set to take place at Hexham Abbey on Tuesday.

It will showcase a wide variety of gifts, from porcelain dolls, to ornaments made from wood and upcycled bottles, and beauty products.

It is the latest of a series of fairs organised by Hexham woman Cheryl Hutchinson this year.

They provide a platform for local craftspeople to raise awareness of their creative work.

Cheryl said: “There are creative people out there who may have no other way of raising awareness of what they can do.

“Like myself, some of the stall-holders have health problems which stop them from doing a normal full time job.

“These events are a good way to find creative new items, and meet new people.”

The fair will take place from 10am to 1.30pm.
