Thousands of people toured the 170 exhibitions of all shapes and sizes at this weekend’s Clare Priory Craft Fair, which took over the town’s medieval priory.

There was also live music, refreshments and lots of other activities to keep the whole family entertained.

Organiser Jane Ranzetta said the event raised around £20,000, which will go to local charities such as the East Anglian Air Ambulance and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

“One of the things I find so heartening is they always say what a lovely atmosphere it is,” added Ms Ranzetta.

“The crafters all seem to love it and many have booked to come back next year.”
