Village ladies enjoyed a night of indulgence at the first shopping and pampering event of its kind held in Heighington in County Durham.


Guests were treated to bubbly and nibbles before trying out mini treatments for the body at My Little Beauty, a retro spa on wheels, and staff from Barcelo Redworth Hall, while minds under went detoxing at Enlightened Living.


From jewellery by QueenBead, photography by BurnsRowatt and shabby chic gifts and homeware from Busy Bee Studio, more than 80 guests made the most of the rare opportunity
of shopping with retailers in the village hall.


The event was organised by Elizabeth Barber, who was selling her own handmade bags, aprons and home accessories plus childrens pyjamas and gifts, and Julia Rowlson, who runs a cup cake business called Cakelicious.


Elizabeth said: It was a fabulous night, very well supported by local ladies and exhibitors alike. We were really pleased to have raised 675 for community groups within the Heighington parish.


Even though many villages have lost shops and services, it shows there is still demand among local people for retail events and a different type of get-together with friends.
