WEM Town Hall hosted its fourth craft fair welcoming more stalls and customers than ever before.

The hall was packed full of people selling hand-crafted goods in aid of a chosen charity.

There were more than 20 stalls across two floors selling a variety of products including knitted clothing, wooden ornaments and decorative canvas pictures.

The chosen charity for this year’s event was Thinking of Mel which was set up in aid of Melissa Jago of Wem.

Melissa worked as a Shropshire paramedic before she suffered serious brain injuries after falling down the stairs at her home.

Organisers at the event hope that the funds raised are able to help Melissa with her rehabilitation.

Rachel Garbett, one of the organisers, said: “After starting this just over a year ago, it’s fantastic to see how much it has grown.

“It’s going really well – this year was definitely the biggest one we’ve done so far.

“There were crafts being sold over two days, and with a second floor of stalls on the Saturday.

“First time round we raised money for Wem Youth Club, then the following time was North Shropshire Responders and the time after that was Sleepy Cat Rescue, so we thought this year it would be a good idea to raise funds for Thinking of Mel.

“It’s nice to see so many locally made products all hand-crafted being put on sale for the people who visit.

“When we started doing it, it was a group of just five of us in a small room selling things, now it’s much bigger.”

The craft fair will be returning to the Town Hall again for its fifth time on Saturday, March 9 2019.
