We are all hoping that the sun will shine at the weekend but it won't make any difference to us at the art & craft show as everything is inside this year. Sadly our toy stall lady cannot make it as she has broken her hand (we wish her all the best for a speedy recovery) but there will be silver jewellery, pottery, beadwork, knitted goods, buttoncraft, needlecraft, embroidery, handmade cards and gift boxes, scarves, glasswork, photography, artist's cards, paintings, drawings, the Village Jubilee Quilt, refreshment and a 'have-a-go table' to paint a piece for our group Jubilee work of art.
Entrance is just £1 (under 16's free).
Free parking (there may some overflow parking in the field if we are busy so bring your wellies as the grass is long).
Open 10.30 - 5, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May. Arlington Village Hall (BN26 6RX).
Collection in aid of Chestnut Tree House.
While you are in the area, you might like to stroll round to visit St Pancras Church, or if you fancy a longer walk head round to Arlington Bluebell Walk which is still open as the bluebells are only just coming into full glory and you can vote for the winner in the Paint me a Bluebell competition while you are there (www.bluebellwalk.co.uk). We have 2 very good local pubs - the Yew Tree (almost next door to the Village Hall) and the Old Oak about 2 miles away. Abbots Wood and Arlington Reservoir are also nearby.
