Successful Children’s Nearly New Sale
On the morning of Saturday 21st March a successful Children’s Nearly New Sale was held in The Centre. Over 20 tables were booked and a wide range of toys, clothes, nursery equipment was on sale. Throughout the morning table holders were busy selling their items, with lots of interest especially in toys and equipment, including bicycles!
There was a also a busy coffee shop with tasty home made cakes and bacon sandwiches being especially popular. Further funds for The Centre were raised through a raffle.
Table holders came from a range of local villages apart from Halton, including Aughton, Bolton le Sands , Caton, Heysham, Hest Bank and Over Kellet as well as Lancaster and Morecambe. Many of those with tables were regulars, having attended previous CNNS events.
Table holders were asked for their comments on the day, and all were very satisfied with the venue, the organisation before and during the event and 6 were very satisfied, 15 satisfied and only one ‘ a bit disappointed’ with the response to their table and the sales they achieved. Most also confirmed their interest in booking a table for the next – September 26th – CNNS.
There were few suggestions for improvements, but like October 2014, those selling toys and equipment were busier than those just selling children’s clothes.
Most of those attending came from Halton, but also from Bentham, Burton in Lonsdale, Carnforth, Caton, Glasson Dock, Lancaster, Morecambe, Nether Kellett, Slyne and Torrisholme. From further afield was a lady from the Scottish Borders, and a visitor from Warrington.
Useful information was also obtained from them about how best to publicise future Children’s Nearly New Sales – through posters, websites, facebook and email newsletters.
Anyone interested in booking a table for September 26th should contact Centre Manager Maureen on tel: 01524 811316 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
