A good time was had by all on Saturday morning, sampling free sausage rolls, mince pies, sweets, marzipan decorations and biscuits.
All home made, recipes were provided. Plus ideas for recycling or using natural materials to make christmas decorations. Christmas trees out of old paper backs or covered bottle tops, snowflakes, paper chains, tree decorations and yule logs.
