Local residents look forward to the return of the Lions Club car boot sale as the backlog of items to be sold grows in lockdown.
Some local residents have been using their spare time in lockdown to de-clutter their houses, lofts and garages. Whilst this is often therapeutic and leads to a more organised lifestyle, it has left the town with a larger than usual backlog of stock to be sold at the boot fair. And residents can’t wait to cash in on their lockdown labours.
The return of the Bournemouth and Christchurch Lions Club car boot sales has been warmly welcomed. However, there will be a few changes to the arrangements to make it as COVID safe as possible. Pamela White from Lions explains “We’ve been working with the council to implement a COVID secure environment. This means providing hand sanitising stations, marshals, wider isles and as close to a one way system as we can get. We’re now also taking contactless payments for pitches and donations to reduce cash handling to a minimum.”
So with the modified arrangements in place, residents can now look forward to off-loading their stockpile of sellable – and maybe bag a bargain or two as well.
