IF YOU are looking for that last-minute present for Mother’s Day then a new craft fair might be the place to look on Saturday.

It will be at Scarborough Library and run from 10am until 3.30pm.

Organiser Bev Bolton said they had chosen the date because it was the closest to Mother’s Day and added: “We decided to organise a craft fair in Scarborough after travelling to several other fair in North Yorkshire and, when chatting to some of the other stall holders, we discovered that a lot of them were from the Scarborough area.

“We had talked about organising a craft fair a couple of years ago but decided against it at that time, but this time we bit the bullet and did it.

“We wanted to keep it as local to the Yorkshire Coast as possible with as many different variations of crafts as we could with local crafters.”

Crafts on offer will include hand-knitted items, jewellery, hand-carved walking sticks, hand-made greetings cards and textiles.
