It's nearly that time of year, you know, when we don't want to mention the 'C' word. There's not getting away from it though, so if you want to stock up with some beautiful unique hand crafted gifts, decorations or cards put the Two Rivers Trail Festive Fair on your calendar.
The fair is on Saturday 21st November from 10:00am to 3:00 pm at the New Victory Hall in Neatishead - NR12 8AD if you want to put it on your sat nav. Tea, coffee, cakes and mince pies will be sold in aid of the Friends of Neatishead School, and if you want to make a day of it The White Horse Inn is just a step over the road serving delicious food and drink.

'My recent body of work has become an obsession with depicting trees.
Winter finds me parked up in my little car in a spot on some remote Norfolk lane, where I'm able to study and draw a tree in its denuded glory. Trees in leaf are a completely different story and one I'm not ready to tackle just yet.'
