Peace fair to welcome 10,000th visitor

AN annual Peace and Crafts Fair is expected to welcome its 10,000th visitor on Saturday.

Held in Saltaire’s Victoria Hall and organised by the Yorkshire Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, the event is in its 14th year, and will run from 10am to 4pm.

There will be 80 stalls featuring work by local artists and crafters, charities and campaign groups. There will also be food, live music through the day and an ethical Santa’s Grotto.

Catherine Bell from the group said: “Our Peace and Craft Fair has become a Saltaire institution, and has grown in popularity over the years.

“From our records, this year we will hit the 10,000th visitor, probably at some point mid-morning, and that person will receive a special gift to mark that milestone.

“We’re delighted to have a Santa’s Grotto that is a bit different.”
