Keep it Local Craft Fair at Coolings   Saturday, 28 September 2013 - 10:00 till 16:30 for 2 days   “The Keep it Local Craft Fair showcases handmade products from Crafters in Kent Sussex and Surrey. Excellence on your doorstep” Following the stunning craft fairs held earlier this year at Coolings Garden Centre in Knockholt, the “Keep it Local” crafters are back for two days on Saturday 28th September and Sunday 29th September, with new ranges and old favourites. The free-entry fair runs from 10am until 4.30pm. These events are part of a series of Keep It Local craft events being held at Coolings Garden Centre on Rushmore Hill in Knockholt. The crafters showcase products which are handmade locally in Kent or Sussex.  The stallholders are all genuine crafts people with handmade local products from Kent and Sussex. Crafts and gifts such as glass clocks and bespoke silver Jewellery, handmade soap and Original Paintings, biscuit kits, woodturned objects, leather bound notebooks and handmade cards and much more! Organised by Anne Marriner of Abercoombe Silver, who makes hallmarked silver jewellery, the events give visitors access to quality, individual gifts and treats for all the family.  Anne said: “At our last fair held in October, there was such a buzz and not a little surprise that such lovely items are within touching distance of us all. With transport costs so high at the moment, both from a money and environmental point of view, it is fitting that we should plan a series of events showcasing superb, high quality products from a selection of inspirational cottage industries right here in Kent and Sussex. The energy, enterprise, commitment and enthusiasm of the craftspeople is plain to see. Good craftsmanship and design abound in this little corner of England – there’s no need for you to travel miles for that very special gift, or indeed, for that very special gift to travel miles to you!” The fair will be in the lecture room at Coolings Garden Centre, Rushmore Hill, Knockholt, TN14 7NN. Opening times: Saturday 28th September and Sunday 29th September 10am to 4.30pm. Follow the signs from the main entrance.
