There will be bargains galore at St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church fair in Gore on Saturday.

The annual fair is usually held in the winter but has been postponed twice because of Covid-19.

Fair convener Margaret Martyn said the fair, which had been held for many years, was always popular with Gore residents.

“The fair has become a tradition in Gore,” Mrs Martyn said.

The baking stall was always emptied of its contents first.

“People rush to the baking.”

“People like homemade things.”

The white elephant stall was always well supported also.

“There’s lots of bargains.”

Other stalls would sell items such as vegetables, knitting, plants and bric-a-brac.

Former church member the late Alice Wright had left the contents of a flat to the church and while some of these had been sold at a garage sale last year, there were still plenty of items which would be sold at the fair.

The fair will start at 10am in the church hall and there will be refreshments available to buy.
