A fundraiser has organised a craft fair to boost funds for the village hall in her community.

Deirde Smith has organised the craft fair at Somerleyton Village Hall on Monday, May 29 between 10am and 3pm.

So far there are 15 stalls that have been booked in at the event, which is the second of three fundraising events she has set up in aid of the hall.

A previous table top sale raised £200 for the hall and the third event will be an art exhibition at the village hall on July 8 between 11am and 3pm. It is the same day as the village school fete.

Mrs Smith decided to fundraise again this year after an art exhibition at the hall last year raised funds for the RSPCA and Dogs Abroad.
