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.
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.
Start the new school year with a clear out at the first of our autumn car boot sales.
Toys and children’s goods were hot sellers at the summer sale but, in September, organised people will already be thinking about Christmas so bring along any unwanted gifts, kitchenware, jewellery, books, clothes, etc. and start making space in your cupboards. Unfortunately, sellers cannot bring electrical items unless they hold a valid PAT test and anyone wishing to sell food will need a valid Food Hygiene Certificate.
