Handmade jewellery, ornaments and art by crafty Redbridge residents were on sale at a fair on Saturday.

The unique gifts helped shoppers get Christmas present buying underway at the annual Woodford Craft Fair.

There were around 12 stalls with everything from cards to decorations, candles and hats at Woodford Bowling Club in Kings Avenue, Woodford Green.

Organiser Janet Benson, ladies’ club secretary, sold her own collection of knitted winter scarves.

She said: “This is the third year we have done it and we may again next year.

“We all have a lovely time - there was a nice atmosphere and a lot of people stayed for a cup of tea afterwards.”

More than £100 was raised for the bowling club with the fair and the Woodford Green Amenity Group had a stall to attract new members to help spruce up the area.
