With over 120 cribs on display there was something for eveyone to see. This year our spectacular display had cribs of every type imaginable. There were cribs made of wood, clay, citrus peel, soap stone, beads, knitted ones, ones made of Filmo and wool, there was even an Angel made from a used aerosol can by a little boy in The Gambia.Some came from as far a field as Panama and Burma, in fact there were cribs from Ecuador, Panama, Wales, Spain, Belize, Tanzania, Gambia and Niger. Would you believe one was even purchased from Wilkos!!
A big thank you to the fund raising committee of Barbara Thomas, Jane Veasey, Mary Hooper and Lynda Garner for all their hard work in putting it all together and of course for all the helpers who came along either to make teas and coffees, general act as stewards, to lift in and out the heavy display boards, take money on the door or bake a cake to sell.
A special thank you to everyone who lent their precious cribs for the weekend, without them we would not have a crib festival.
It was pleasing to read comments from our many visitors who took the time to write in our visitors book. It is clear that our visitors really enjoyed the displays.
