The ALFORD CRAFT MARKET, SHOP AND CRAFT CENTRE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE A NEW PROJECT FOR ALFORD - ALFORD ARTS. We have been offered a lease on this handsome shop in Alford Market Place, which used to be Lloyds the Chemist and has been empty for over a year. Situated just next door but one to our Alford Craft Market Shop & Centre it will make an ideal setting for a Gallery and Community Arts Centre to add to the other projects we have set up in Alford. It will enable us to show the work of some of the best of our Lincolnshire artists and offer an inspirational space for Art classes, exhibitions and special events. Also a great addition to the many visitor attractions we already have in Alford! We are now searching for grants for the refit, and hope to be open by late Spring 2021. It will be something to look forward to and cheer us all up next year. Wish us luck!
