Falmouth's Gylly Girls WI hold their first craft fair: PICTURES

Gylly Girls Women’s Institute members have raised more than £300 with their first craft fair at Falmouth’s Emmanuel Baptist Church.
The group rented out tables at the fair for local traders and businesses to sell their wares from, as well as operating its own pop-up cafe selling pies, cakes and quiches donated by members.
There was also a “kids’ corner,” featuring familiar staples such as splat the rat and lucky dip.
Organiser Clair Collins said: “I think we did pretty well. Overall it was a success.”
“We got lots of traders, and most people did well over the day.”
The fair was a fundraiser for the women’s institute, whose members have to raise all their own funds. This year they decided to try “something bigger” to raise a larger amount in one go, with plans to hold one event a year.
Clair said she estimated the fair raised around £298 plus around £70 from the renting of the tables. She told the Packet: “It went well for a first time.”
