■ The Country Craft Market takes place on Saturday October 13, at Southey’s Vines, Somerset West, from 9am to 2pm. Local crafters have been hard at work during the winter replenishing stock, and shoppers can take a break at the Country Kitchen, where the Second Somerset West Scouts, among others, provide food and drink, while Country Kids keep the children busy with a jumping castle and Paxie the clown. Pooches have not been forgotten either, with a special water bowl in front of the information stall. There is plenty of safe free parking behind Southey’s Vines. For more information, contact Gill at 021 852 6608, or visit www.countrycraftmarket.org Pictured are visitors to the market, among the colourful stalls.
