Thousands of people enjoyed a nostalgic Easter Monday during a vintage fair at Scarborough’s Spa Complex.

The event featured stalls, entertainment, a vintage tearoom, hair and beauty salon, NAAFI cafe with 1940s menu and vintage cars.

Katrina Flynn, one of the event’s organisers, said: “It was fantastic. We had around 2,500 people through the doors and people were staying all day.

“There were stallholders and visitors from all over the country.”

During the fair, a charity appeal called was launched in aid of Martin House Children’s Hospice.

Katrina explained: “We want people to get involved the Great Yorkshire Bunting Knit, by knitting a triangle of any colour and submitting it at a drop-off point.

“All the bunting will be put up in the Spa Grand Hall at the next fair on August 24. We’re hoping it will raise £2,500 for the hospice.”

To get involved, knit your triangle and drop it off with a donation of £1 and your contact details at Violet Lux in St Nicholas Street.

There is also more information at the shop and leaflets with a knitting pattern, which were printed free of charge to support the appeal by Adverset.

Triangles can be submitted up until August 15. Knitting workshops for beginners are being held at Violet Lux - call in to find out more.
