Only two days until the Crich Christmas Fair

by Andrew Auld

There are only two days to go until Crich Christmas Fair! The wine is ready to mull and the decorations are up! And if you've been wondering how you could have a 'greener' Christmas this year, we can help!

If you are local you could walk to the fair. Just follow the arrows from the Market Place to The Glebe Centre. No carbon emissions there!

Then, all of the stalls are being run by local Derbyshire businesses. We have cakes from Belper, bath bombs from Riddings, pottery from Fritchley, cider from Ashover, home made mince pies from The Glebe ....the list goes on. The furthest business away is Crafty You Crafty Me, based in Hilton. So there won't be many carbon miles involved in getting the exhibitors to the fair.

And finally, all of the stallholders make their own, unique gifts and don't wrap them in a load of plastic packagaing. We even have Belper toy library selling second hand good as new toys. So, remember to bring your own bags to put those presents in when you buy them!

There is just one snag though - Father Christmas will be putting in an appearance and opening the fair. I wonder how many sleigh miles he will have to do?!
