As you may know Garstang was one of the few regular jumbles up north, sadly I believe the land went for housing? so its no more. Today we went to Lesure Lakes near Southport to Merebrow Autojumble. The websites not very good but I spoke to the organiser today and they have plans to improve but have to get walking before they can run. www.merebrowautojumble.co.uk
For the second event it was good turn out, the thing we liked was it starts at 7 and its all over by 12ish so you can pop round in the morning and home for lunch etc. Admission is £2.50 I think kids are free but check. Butty van was good and only £2.50 for a bacon butties and they did do a breakfast deal too. Some people take the family as Lesure Lakes has stuff going on and Southport isn't far away too. www.leisurelakes.co.uk
Thanks for this mate I was really annoyed when Garstang stopped. I found so really good bits and bobs and when it stop the only other good ones what Newark which is 2 hours from my house and Garstang was only 45 mins . So I will have a pop up to this ones and have a look.
Just spread the word, the Autojumble is what we make it, with out us it won't survive, the venue is massive so could get much bigger, we have a fair bit of stuff from a relatives garage and shed to clear, we did better here than we did at Newark as we found Newark was mainly dealers and not people like us clearing out. Its £15 for a pitch so if two of you go and share the cost, take some collectables, we bought nearly as much as we sold! We met a few the regulars from Garstang, one bloke comes on a 400 mile round trip from Scotland!
Next dates the website is not good i will tell him off when i see him! Events for 2019 * 13th October 2019 (On hard standing) 10th November 2019 8th December 2019 October was very wet but people still turned up! Remember this is what we make it, if we have a clear out and go it will be a bigger event The Newark of the North is what I want it to be, its got plenty space and a massive population nearby
