Be ‘udderly’ devoted to your Valentine...
If you are “loved-up” this month, you’ll make your way to Hebden Bridge’s latest craft fair in a heartbeat.
The town’s Holme Street Arts Centre is hosting a series of events this year, starting with a Valentine’s “Craftaganza” on Saturday.
Visitors will find a host of stalls featuring crafts, gifts and cards to delight their secret (or maybe not-so-secret) love.
More than 25 stalls will be marketing a romantic range of loveable goodies from 10am to 4pm and admission is free.
Among the exhibitors will be Michelle Campbell, who lives on the outskirts of Hebden Bridge and who will be taking along a range of cards, prints and original watercolour paintings, including one (pictured) called Udderly in Love, from her series of images called Moo Cows and Udder Cows.
Also exhibiting will be Vic and Janet with their range of shabby chic furniture and handmade jewellery and Caroline with her shabby rag dolls.
Other regulars featuring on Saturday include Forage recycled gifts and cushions, Dotty Cottage, Green Man Ceramics and Dessert Face Cup Cakes.
Newcomer Mel Hearn will offer a range of handmade cushions for sale. For more details see Facebook pages holmestreetartscentre and hebdencraftaganza.
Continuing the love theme in Hebden Bridge, Prestige Flowers, based at the town hall, has successfully launched Barnardos Flowers - www.BarnardosFlowers.org.uk.
Business development manager Philip Crowther said the company aimed to donate thousands of pounds to the children’s charity (tel 0843 289 4775 for more details).
Prestige is also running a Valentine competition on its Facebook page to win a diamond engagement ring, a romantic meal for two and a platinum bouquet of flowers, worth more than £750.
The competition is free for everyone to enter and winners will be announced on Tuesday. Philip said there was also a runner-up prize of £100 and a luxury bouquet of flowers.
