During the at home days Alford Craft Market gave the people of Alford and the surrounding villages a fun and creative community project! We had the idea of a really Big Garland of multi coloured Pom Poms to decorate the tree in the main Market Place in Alford. Each pom pom has a label attached where people put their name and a message to a friend, or family, or just a message to the world.
We sponsored 240 free pom pom kits. People liked the idea so much we ended up with 400 pom poms!
Update April 2021 - the pom pom garland has had a makeover and is now back up in the tree - looking very cheerful! Unfortunately the messages to the world didnt survive the weather or the washing machine!
Mum says "Took my daughter Pippa for a walk through the market place today for the first time in weeks and I didn’t tell her about the Pom Pom tree, when she spotted it, it made her day and she had the biggest smile on her face 😊"
