Who Needs the Treacle when we have FAB

Saturday 10th December sees the return of the FAB market to the canal basin.

Once again they’ll be a not to be rivalled mix of food and arts stalls, this time with a special Christmas twist.

Get on  down there from 10am  to 3pm and pick up some stocking fillers, for yourself or that special someone in your life.  Great fun for young and old.
