The Inverurie Community Crafts project shows the skills of its members

Local artisans enjoyed a very successful fair on Saturday at the premises of Grampian Enterprises (GO) in West High Street, Inverurie.

The group was formed two years ago as part of the Inverurie Community Handicraft Project (ICCP) and meets regularly to discuss plans for different projects.

Phyliss Gordon, founding member of ICCP, explained: “It really started out as something to be done during the lockdown.

“We now have 618 members participating and we also run workshops for people who want to learn skills like crochet, knitting or wreath making and also offer help for people who just need some advice with the job they have chosen. “

Profits are donated to individual artisans and as donations go to the community pantry.

GO Development Officer Linda Singer said this year, instead of sending Christmas cards, GO was encouraging people to donate to the community pantry to support those in need in Garioch.
