Garage sale returns

Winterton-on-Sea garage saleWINTERTON’S popular garage sale is returning later this spring and it is being timed to coincide with VE Day weekend.

The parish council fundraiser, which was called off last year under a cloud of acrimony, will be held on 10th May with Victory in Europe theme and includes a tabletop sale in the village hall.

Cllr John Smithson said: “All proceeds go into the parish council coffers and will support other community events and projects.”

He also revealed there are plans to stage a country fair in August.

“We are intending to hold the event on the village sports field and hope to use any revenues raised to help replace the crumbling changing rooms,” he told the WoS site.

He stressed it was in the early planning stages, but a number of different activities were under discussion.

The garage sale starts at 10.00am and runs until 4.00pm. Households that want to take part can pay £5 to be put on the village map. Bargain hunters will be able to buy a copy of the map for £1.

Those wanting to take a stall in the village hall pay £7. 

Look out for more details on both events.
