The 2010 annual DRCS Shopping Fair takes place this week at the Maynard in Grindleford (S32 2HE for those reliant on a Satnav.)
Om Wednesday between 4 – 8 pm will be the ‘preview’ with sparkling wine, canapes and the chance to have the pick of all the exciting things for sale – plus the chance of possibly winning a diamond…! Tickets £10 per person.
