 Mammoth Jumble Sale held at the Bath and West Show Ground 2002/2009

For Many years now we held our Annual Mammoth jumble sale at The Bath and West. This was been the main source of income for building our cart each year. It took a good 3 months of organizing, from Christmas to the beginning of April, when it was usually held. We distributed leaflets in Shepton Mallet and the surrounding villages and arrange a date for the area collections. This took a lot of man power. The collecting did not stop there, it all had to be stored and sorted until the day of the sale. A week before the Jumble Sale, with many volunteers, the Showering's hall at the Bath & West was transformed into a massive furniture, brick-a-brack, clothes, household items, books and toy warehouse, this was a sight to be seen. Any items unsold had then to be disposed of, much of which went to the Salvation Army. Unfortunately due to lack of volunteers, it was not possible to continue.
