Preparations For Easter Fair

By Paul, 12/04/2017 2:52 pm

We have begun all the moving about and re-organizing we need to do to make room for the Crafters and other stalls for this coming weekends Easter Fair. This year we have overflow hard standing for extra parking and the weather forecast looks good for the weekend (if You will be able to warm up with a nice hot beverage and a slice of pizza.  Sadly, due to illness, we won’t have the mobile forge working this year but we will have their Victorian Sock Knitting Machine working away making some seriously good quality socks! We try to post more about individual crafters over the next couple of days if we get time.

By Helen, 27/07/2012 2:39 pm

Its that time of the year again, the Mid Devon show is upon us!  Here is a sneak preview of our stand, the  theme this year is ‘Seed to Feed’, it’s always a challenge to come up with new ideas and beautiful plants but think it looks OK, in fact the whole marquee is looking very colourful with the Tiverton Flower Club floral arrangements and the display put on by Tiverton Garden Club.  There is plenty to do at the show, a packed craft marquee and of course all the usual fur and feather and rural skills.  So come in and see us!
