A BOOTIFUL RECORD-BREAKING DAY
September 12 2014.
Mike Hemmings reports:
Records tumbled as the Rotary Club of Seaford presented its September Car Boot, Craft and Produce Fair at Martello Fields last Sunday, with an impressive 77 pitches sold and the punters coming out in abundance. We raised £859 for charities and worthy causes to boot!
The Club has known nothing like it since the early days of the Boot Fair project a few years ago when one August event raised nearly £1,000 for our charitable causes.
This time, the sun shone on our efforts (possibly to make up for the complete wash-out in August!) with the ice cream man selling just as much as the hot food truck. And there was even a rush on our Grand Charity Raffle tickets which will be sold again at the next Boot Fair on Sunday October 5 before Morrisons Store takes over as host the following week, starting Thursday 9th.
Incidentally, it is the last Boot Fair until next April, so clear the decks at home and come and take a stall. You will be surprised at what people will buy if you don’t ask too much.
Here’s hoping for another sunshine morning. After all, the forecasters tell us to expect it dry and warm right up to November.
You have got to believe it.
