IN the run up to Christmas pop up shops and makers from across Herefordshire will get together for a new event that will celebrate a special anniversary.

On November 3 at Ledbury Rugby Club, Gun Dog Gin will be sponsoring the Herefordshire festive gift fair in aid of Megan Baker House.

The charity, based in Orchard Lane, Ledbury, has been helping children and adults who suffer from movement issues caused by motor disorders for 20 years.

The charity was started in 2002 by Jo and Dave Baker whose daughter Megan had cerebral palsy.


They found conductive education the most effective method for Megan and decided that a centre in Herefordshire offering free services to all children was needed.

Conductive education is a way of life, and the person can transfer the skills and techniques learnt in a session into all aspects of everyday life.

It has helped people of different ages and background over the years and now people selling an array of different items want to give something back to them.

The Lancaster Company will be offering mid-century and vintage homeware you may never have seen before.


Ledbury Letter Press will be bringing together traditional letterpress printing and fresh designs in bold colours.

Milton & Manor, Monkley's, Gun Dog Gin, Wilce's Cider, White Farm Baskets, Myrtles Kitchen, Choccotastic, and Tom's Yard are some of the other names set to make an appearance.

The event will take place from 4pm to 8.30pm in the Pavillion Rooms at the club.

It will be £5 entry.

Organisers hope it will turn into an annual event, choosing different charities each year.
