Non essential retail has already reopened and since the 12th April, we have seen a step change in the number of organisers adding new craft events and crafters looking for events to attend.
We canít get away from the fact that last year was hard for everyone. However, with the governments road map aiming to be irreversible, that should give the community confidence to plan and run future craft fairs.
On the 17th May it is planned that further social restrictions will be lifted and then on 21st June, it is expected that all restrictions on social contact will be lifted.
The success of the vaccine rollout coupled with lockdowns has got us to where we are now. We can all help to keep eachother safer by continuing to be careful following hands, face, space and ventilate guidelines. Whilst building craft enterprises to be proud of.
We wish you all well in this delayed but vitally important craft year ahead.
Members of the site can create their own blog, posting about things that relate to thier business or craft.
