Visitors flocked to the town hall to buy some original crafts and enjoy a cup of tea and a cake – including Royston mayor Victoria Hulstrom-Allen who spent time chatting to stall holders.

Organiser Laura Whitford, who also owns yarn-based business Kozmic Dreams, said: “I’m overwhelmed with the support from stall holders and locals, as well as the quality of products, which so many customers commented on.”

Starting from June, the fair will be held monthly.
