Walkley Fayre takes a walk on the wild side

Have your say

SHOPKEEPERS and craftspeople celebrated all that’s wonderful about Walkley at the Sheffield suburb’s autumn fayre.

Steph Bowley had her knitting needles clicking, making and selling woollen mice tucked up in bedtime boxes.

David Beardshaw from the Walkley Foodstore had gifts perfect for dads - selections of locally-brewed real ales.

Madame Zucchini’s stand had the kids captivated.

Siblings Leo Cummings, aged seven, Toby, four, and Rosa, nine, tried their hands at animal-making, coming up with cats that looked like carrots, ‘hippo-tatoes’ and flocks of ‘pea-cocks’.

The fayre was staged at Walkley Community Centre in Ruskin Hall on Fir Street, and included secondhand clothes stalls, vinyl records, jewellery, children’s clothes and books, bric a brac, and greetings cards.

A cafe sold fair trade tea and coffee plus homemade cakes and biscuits.
