The Autumn Plant & Craft Fair is coming to the Tuesday Market Place in King’s Lynn from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 7 September.
The event will feature a wide range of stalls, demonstrations and workshops that will appeal to both keen gardeners and families in search of a fun day out.
Also, Barcham Trees will be attending. The dedicated tree nursery has kindly offered to donate leftover trees from the fair to the Street Trees for Lynn initiative. The scheme has been running for over two years and aims to create long-term environmental benefits by planting trees in urban areas.
This year’s Autumn Plant & Craft Fair features:
- Plant/craft stalls
- Children’s activities
- Chainsaw carving demonstration
- Drop-in plant and tree surgery featuring, BBC Radio Norfolk’s ‘Plant Doctor’, Ian Roofe
- Hot food and ice cream from the Norfolk Large Black Banger Co and Ronaldo’s Ices.
- West Norfolk & King's Lynn Beekeepers' Association (with observation hive)
- Gaywood Valley Conservation Group
- The Solar Shed (renewable energy)
Elizabeth Nockolds, deputy leader and portfolio holder for culture, heritage and health at the borough council, said: “Following the success of our Spring Plant and Craft Fair I’m delighted that this event has been introduced. This is another great free family event, with lots to see and do, and a great way to discover how to get your garden in good shape ahead of the winter months.
The kind donation from Barcham Trees will help the Street Trees for Lynn initiative, a collaboration between the borough council, Lynn Civic Society and GroundWork art gallery. This scheme is part of an ongoing plan of new tree planting that could greatly enhance our urban environment in coming years.”
The free activity and craft workshops are for all ages, but children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.
