More than 40 stalls opened for business at Nailsea Methodist Church on Saturday for its annual Christmas craft fair.

Bigger and better than ever the festive event raised £2,400 most of which will be given to charities.

 The Rev Mandy Briggs said: "The craft fair was really successful and we want to say a big thank you to everyone who came to support it, visited the different stalls and bought the bacon butties."

As well as craft stalls, attractions on the day included childrens crafts, an exhibition of angels and an infomation point about the Nailsea Water Project. 

Several stall holders donated their proceeds to the water project.

  • The Nailsea Uganda Water Project a charity which has teamed up with Tearfund is tasked to raise £30,000 for three years to bring clean water to an impoverished part of Africa. It is currently looking for approximately 20 people from the wider caring community to be sponsored to carry Little Jerry - a yellow painted plastic milk container filled with either one, two or three  litres -  everywhere they go for a week from Monday to Sunday, November 19-25. The Rev Joylon Trickey, of Holy Trinity, has already signed up for the feat.
