Do you need to de- clutter? Would you like to hold a yard sale on your drive, front garden or near your flat/house? If you would like to take part please register in advance so that we can make a map of households taking part. Please register with Sarah Sharp at 13 Whyke Lane for a suggested donation of £3 (minimum donation of £1 if money is an issue). Drop your donation through the door in an envelope marked with your name and address and contact details (in case we have to cancel). Donations cover printing costs. On the day you can sell toys, clothes, plants, cakes or household items. You can raise money for yourself or for charity. Please decorate your stall and make sure that we keep to Covid Guidelines at all times wearing masks, using gel and keeping to the limits of six people at any one time at a stall.

Talking Café

Fancy a Chat? We meet regularly at Wagtail Coffee & Yoga behind Eastgate Square near St Pancras Church from 4 – 5 pm on Tuesdays. Please register in advance if you can. Due to Covid restrictions we will be running small, micro cafes if we have over 6 people. Keep connected with others at this difficult time.
