Stanley Bridge gets early glimpse of Christmas spirit

It was festive time in Stanley Bridge Saturday, Dec 2, when the Sterling Women’s Institute (Stanley Bridge Hall) threw open its doors for the hall’s annual Christmas craft fair. It was a chance for Islanders from near and afar to shop for the perfect Christmas gift, to support local artisans and to greet dear friends. Bracing weather helped draw a strong turnout to this much-anticipated event on the holiday calendar.
