Stall holders Paul and Jayne Read were selling their fairy houses,which are made out of logs, for the first time at a craft fair.

Their merchandise is home-made and called Enchanted World Gifts and can be recycled and have multiple uses.

Jayne Read said: "This is the first craft fair we've done.

"It started during lockdown going through our log store just for something to do.

"Paul cuts the logs and carves the doors and windows and I paint the colours and felt the roofs.

"For a Christmas theme I added glitter on to the fleece and lights going round.

"They look nice in a porch or to use as a garden ornament, or can be burnt if you no longer want to keep it."
