1213 Andover Squadron Air Training Corps held a Live Arts and Christmas Fair at the Guild Hall in Andover, offering an opportunity to see the products of local artists and to buy some quality Christmas presents.
"On display were silk paintings, glass and fabric designs, woodturning, stained glass and handcrafted woven textiles. Along with County Cllr David Kirk, I tried my hand at this, but it is more difficult than it looks! Members of the Hampshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers & Dyers have got it down to a fine art. David and I will stick to our own type of spinning!"
A \message from the organisers - Mary and David Clegg.
"Many thanks indeed to all those who helped at today's arts and crafts fair. Many thanks to our stallholders for coming and to Sir George Young for officiating.
We raised £343.00 at the last count and no doubt Carolyn will give the real total. The stall holders contribution added another £210.00 making £553.00 before moderate expenses!
Well done everyone!!!!
Although these figures have to be verified the tombola raised £153.00 Door approx £90.00 and refreshments another £100.00.
Our sincere thanks.
David and Mary
