Unfortunately, the decision has been made to close down the running of the Car Boot Sales with immediate effect.
There are many factors involved in this decision including a lot of valuable feedback, available resources and future plans for the Centre.
We would like to thank everyone who supported us and helped it grow and develop (Sellers, Buyers and Volunteers). We’ve had a lot of fun getting to know all of you over the last few months and hope that you will continue to support the centre as it moves forward with its development and future events in the pipeline.
Would you like to join us on Saturday 26th for the first of our Tea and Tunes afternoon music events? You could enjoy an hour of live music from the 40s, 50s and 60s supplied by The Live 45s with tea and biscuit refreshments in the interval provided by the Beaufort Community Centre and Cranleigh Road Co-op.
It would be great if you could let us know you’ll be coming along, but feel free to turn up on the day if it takes your fancy. The more the merrier!
We are looking for people to help at two of our fundraising car boot sales events each per year. Nothing more.
The Car Boot Sales are held on the third Sunday of every month and all the staff at the events are volunteers. This means every penny generated goes back to the Centre, aside from advertising costs such as printing flyers. We are currently raising funds to make improvements to the Centre, reinstate the kitchen facilities and run events to meet the needs of the local community.
At each car boot sale, we have received fantastic positive feedback from the local community and it’s clear people want it to keep going. But we can only continue to run them long term if we find a few lovely people willing to provide some practical support. We know Sunday mornings aren’t everyone’s cup of tea so we are only asking for two days a year of your time from each volunteer.
Please drop us a line using the form below if you can help. We would love to hear from you.
