The community is set to benefit from a display of crafts hosted by the Cust Craft Group next month.

The group is hosting a display of works at St James on the Cust Church on Sunday, November 3, with the proceeds going to support North Canterbury Riding for the Disabled and Rachel's House Trust, which supports young parents.

Organiser Ricki Sullivan says the display will include patchwork, quilting, embroidery, paper crafts and knitting.

There will also be five raffles on sale, with the prizes being two quilts, knitted jumpers and two Christmas hampers.

She says the Cust Craft Group has a growing membership, with 40 active members. ''It's a pretty active group and we have some new members from Amberley.

''It's a vibrant group and we are looking forward to our display of works.''

Members come from Rangiora, Swannanoa, Eyrewell, Oxford and Okuku, as well as Cust, ''so there's a wide spread'', Mrs Sullivan says.

''And some ladies who used to live in Cust come out from Christchurch, which shows how much they enjoy it.''

-The Cust Craft Group's display of works will be held at St James on the Cust Church from 10am to 3pm on Sunday, November 3, with a $2 entry fee. Contact Ricki by phone or text on (021) 2646536.
