LOVERS of Arts, Crafts and Gifts Fairs flocked to St Barnabas Church for the recently resumed ‘Second Saturday Stands’ series.
Organised by Cantelupe Community Association (CCA) the fairs - held on the second Saturday of every month 10am-4pm - regularly showcase locally crafted goods.
A CCA organiser said: “CCA is very grateful for its regular supporters at their events. Many share the same concerns for the immediate area of Cantelupe Road, for its history and facilities as well as for the Grade II listed St Barnabas, set within the Bexhill Town Centre Conservation Area.
“Just 4 years ago the building was almost lost for redevelopment. It is thanks to the representations of the community and the Victorian Society that the church closure order was withdrawn.”
Funds raised have facilitated the purchase of the Community Coffee Shop equipment, the restoration of a chandelier, contributions to the church fabric fund and the setting up of a church window restoration fund.
Entry to many events is free. For further details call 01424-213498 or email: email@example.com
