Love was in the air at the first Royston Craft Fair of the year, and many a romantic gift was purchased at the Valentine’s event.

For people that missed out, there’s more of that to come at future events, as Kim is now running the tea room.

Craft fair organiser Laura Whitford, who also owns craft shop No.3 in Melbourn Street, said: “Our first craft fair of the year went well despite the rain and it was lovely to see hand-crafted products from lots of new crafters, alongside our amazing regulars.

“Kim’s chocolate banana loaf was delicious!”

“Let’s hope our love-themed creations helped get people in the mood for romance, or at least a bit of hanky panky! Please tell everyone you know to come along and support local businesses. Use it or lose it.”

The fairs are held on the second Saturday of the month in Royston Town Hall in Melbourn Street and everything is handmade by local crafters.
