Craft supplies for festival

PLAnning for the Eastwood Arts Festival is already underway and volunteers are appealing for unwanted craft items.

The Village Volunteers group, based in Brinsley, is holding a craft fair in July as part of the festival and all money raised will be donated to the Eastwood Volunteer Bureau.

But group members need craft supplies and are appealing to the public to get in touch.

They will be selling fabric, tapestry, wool, buttons, artificial flowers and anything else that can be used by crafters. Arts and crafts books will also be on sale for 50p.

The fair will be held at the Dora Phillips Hall in Wood Street on July 22 and 23.

People can drop the items off at Eastwood Volunteer Bureau or ring 01773 712637.
