Earlier today I called to the Rising Sun Pub on Cwmavon Road to support their first Christmas Craft Fair, there were around 19 stalls in total, scattered about the pub selling locally sourced crafts and produce.
As always the crafts were of a very high standard and the traders made everyone feel really welcome.
My first purchase was from local business owner, Jessica Hope who had brought a large selection of fudges with her, including her new Christmas Cake fudge, which was absolutely delicious and a must for Christmas!
The Goat Lady was there selling gift sets of Goats Soap, Lotion along with their trade mark Goats soap in a sack. There were also Quail eggs and Chicken eggs on offer all locally sourced on the stall.
It was also a pleasure to see Mrs Trudie Smith and her daughter selling their home made material flowers along with wreaths for Christmas.
There were so much selection there to choose from for Christmas, it was one of the best Craft Fairs I had attended locally with such a high standard displayed by all.
It was good to chat to local residents including local Charity Fund Raiser Mrs Hazel Jenkins and the ladies from Victoria Village Community Hall, who kindly bought me a coffee and sat with me for a general chat.
Thank you to the new owners of the Rising Sun for putting on this event, showcasing some of the best the Abersychan Ward has to offer.
