With so many events over the last few weeks with the heavy rain, Castle Combe Circuit's famous Car Boot Sales have stood out, as despite the diverse conditions affecting many local Car Boot Sales in fields that have become water logged, the permanent facilities at the international race circuit have provided visitors with a damp but nevertheless enjoyable experience. It is fantastic to report that, through the generosity of the visitors in these tough economic times, an amazing £3,000 have already been raised at the two opening events.
The third of the 2012 Car Boot Sales is on Sunday 27th May, with the benefiting charity being Yatton Keynell Recreation Association, and we are hoping that the same generosity will prevail.
Castle Combe Circuit is situated on the B4039, just a few miles west of Chippenham, and it's permanent international race circuit facilities, with many stalls sited on tarmac, good toilet facilities and quality catering, as well as good access roads and parking facilities for everyone. All of this makes a morning at a Castle Combe Car Boot Sale a pleasant and enjoyable experience - and of course you might find that elusive bargain.
Admission for buyers is just via a 50p donation with all monies raised going straight to the nominated charity. Gates open from 9am.
For sellers if you are cleaning out the loft, the garage or the shed, then fill up the car and come via the Quarry Corner entrance, which is clearly signposted and queue any time from 7am with 'booters' escorted around the famous race circuit and parked up from 8am. Sites are just £8 per car, £10 per small van or car & trailer and £25 per large van.
And if you have never been to a Car Boot Sale before, then don't worry, because on entry, a few useful facts and information is given to you to make your selling experience fun, enjoyable and hopefully profitable.
