After such a long period of uncertainty. I am excited once more to be returning to the fair circuit for real live events.!  I  do hope that I will see a  few of you at some stage in the diary .I've missed you !

I delayed making  bookings for fear that they would be cancelled once more. Fingers crossed this will not happen and there will be no further lockdowns and Covid figures will remain steady.

Quite a few of the Fairs have decided not to hold events this year due to  uncertainty. Others have felt it is time to stop altogether, which is very sad! I do hope that as many of you as can ,will come and support small local businesses so that we can continue to provide a little colour ,fun and inspiration that you may well struggle to find on our ever dwindling High Streets.

We continue to be members of the CFA and a great many of the Fairs we attend are Charity Fairs which means that we not only pay 10% of our daily earnings to the given Charity, but that more often that not we also contribute Gifts to the Raffle.So our success supports those charities who have struggled with funding during lockdown

At Emma Darlington we continue to have exciting new collections of colourful, well priced, good quality women's wear and accessories that will fit UK sizes 10-20 . Come and check out our new knitwear and evening and day tops, amongst other bits and bobs.Put a pop of colour into your winter wardrobe.

The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is a national charity that inspires young people aged 8-24 to believe in a brighter future living through and beyond cancer. For many young people, simply picking up where they left off before their diagnosis isn’t possible. That is why when treatment ends, our work begins. Through sailing and outdoor activity, young people… * build confidence by making friends with others who have had similar experiences - often for the first time. * rediscover independence away from home and outside of their ‘cancer bubble’. * begin to realise what they are capable of again. * stop feeling like the ‘only one’. Their mental wellbeing improves, and they can start to re-establish their place in the world by getting back into education or employment and reconnecting with their friends and families. Every young person should feel valued, accepted, optimistic and independent living through and beyond cancer.
