A VERY successful Christmas craft sale took place in Powick Parish Hall.

Organised by Roy and Lyn Snook, the event attracted many different craft stalls, including fancy cakes. Bacon baps and coffee and cakes were served during the day and alongside a raffle, sales resulted in £800 being taken.

After expenses it is expected that the Air Ambulance will benefit by the sum of £750.

Thanks go to all who attended.
