22nd March 2020 For the first time in 20 years, the Yard Sale has to be canceled due to the corona virus pandemic but, of course, we hope that this will only be a postponement to later in 2020.
6th March 2020
THE yard sale is the spring highlight in the Colonies calendar, attracting hundreds of visitors and involving the whole community in having fun and raising money. Everyone is invited to take part. Last year, 42 households set up stalls in their gardens selling plants, home baking, toys, books, arts and crafts, paintings, cards, bric-a-brac, clothes old and new, furniture… and offering children’s activities, live music and refreshments.
If you’re new to the Colonies, the Yard Sale is a great way to meet your neighbours and an opportunity to earn some money for yourself and/or raise funds for charity. You don’t need to do it on your own – team up with a neighbour or involve friends.
Whether you are a new or established resident, if you’d like to take part, have new ideas and/or are interested in finding out more, contact Sarah Hill on 07939 041970 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, of course, for those of us who enjoy exploring the Colonies streets, browsing, admiring and buying while we bump into neighbours and friends, then this is an afternoon not to be missed!
