Avington Car Boot Sale
Just about everyone in the village in the run up to July 14 and on the day of the event, put in a huge effort to make the Car Boot Sale the resounding success it was.
All, from the planners, those who contributed with plants, cakes and bric a brac, those who sold them, the Village tent erectors, the car parkers, those on the gate, the collection and counting of the money and those running the stalls, worked very long and hard. The usual amazing good humour, kindness and consideration we all expect from our community was evident throughout. Others in the Valley made contributions, too, and we are grateful to them.
Special mention should really be made of our wonderful Sarah Bullen who, tirelessly and ably supported by Helen Wayne, allowed the event to happen. She made sure the field was ready – no mean feat – mapped it out efficiently to make it easy for sellers to park and was present the whole time to ensure that any problems were immediately sorted. This all despite having a popular show at Avington Park an hour later to get rolling! We in the planning group, feel so privileged.
Thank you so much to everyone who put hands to the pump to get this wonderful event off the ground – a great community exercise!
