The recent Craft Fair at Leven’s Letham Glen was so successful, organisers have already put the wheels in motion for the next one!

Dozens of locals headed to the local park for the event, which organisers are hoping will become something of a regular thing, putting the Glen firmly back on the map for the people of Levenmouth.

Revellers were treated to a variety of hand-made craft stalls at the fair, held on the first Sunday of May, including ceramics, jewellery, home-made candles and personalised sweetie jars.

Other attractions on the day included hook a duck, a bouncy castle, mini funfair display, henna tattoos, face painting, crazy golf, a duck race and talent show.

The talent show, organised with the help of Sophian Events, proved to be somewhat of a hit and attracted acts from all age groups with entrants as young as just three years old singing in a duet and loving the X Factor-inspired event.

Matthew Farrell, a volunteer at the Craft Centre, which is open seven days a week within Letham Glen, was instumental in bringing the whole thing together and was quite clearly delighted with the results.

“We were really lucky with the weather and had a fantastic turn-out,” he said.

“Some of the crafters were sold out within three hours and have already booked up for the next event which we’re hoping to hold at the beginning of June.

“Following feedback we hope to make the talent show bigger and better and maybe do this as a separate event as well as including it in the fun day.”

The craft centre was opened in 2011 after Mary Parry from local charity MyBus saw potential in the former nature hut.
