Home traders and craft makers galore are set to fill St Lawrence Church in Heanor for the second time on Saturday, from 9am until 1pm.

The first fair, held over the May Bank Holiday weekend saw local traders display their wares at more than 36 stalls.

Organiser Jane Wells said: “It was absolutely amazing - at one point you couldn’t move for people. We were nervous at the start - wondering if people would come - but they came!”

Saturday’s fair will see a challenge with exercise bikes with pedometers. Pupils, staff and governors from Mundy Junior School are set to take on the general public - to see who can cycle the equivalent distance from Heanor to Buckingham Palace.

Some of the stall holders there on Saturday will include card makers Phoenix Trading, Peacock plant nurseries, Heanor Community Acupuncture and handmade craft experts Lil’ Essentials.
