The Christmas Craft Fayre has been organised by Hartlepool Borough Council to mark Small Business Saturday – a national event which celebrates, and helps people discover, small businesses.

Councillor Kevin Cranney, Chair of the Council’s Regeneration Services Committee, said: “This is a great way for people of all ages to get into the festive spirit and solve some of their Christmas present problems.

“Small businesses are a cornerstone of the Hartlepool economy and the Council is committed to doing everything it can to help them flourish and grow, so we’re delighted to be part of Small Business Saturday.”
