A week ago St David's Hospice held it's first Spring Plant Fair. Unfortunately the weather was horrendous but those stalwart stall holders who had their stalls outside did an amazing job of braving the elements while raising money for the Hospice.

Once we had stocked up on plants for the garden and bought kale for the vegetable patch we rushed inside to see the craft stalls. Mandy Coates from Abergele had a super stall selling woven baskets and place mats.
There was even a chance for visitors to make their own hanging bird feeding basket. It was a great idea to let people have a go at weaving the willow branches ( probably the incorrect word! ) to make their very own bird feeder. As we watched there were some very proud customers leaving with their finished work of art. Check out Mandy's amazing creations on http://www.mandycoates.co.uk/

St David's is reliant on donations and fund raising. They run a local lottery which covers about 25% of their running costs. Find out more about this incredible place on http://www.stdavidshospice.org.uk/
