This is the Boot Sale that never happened.
Myself and many others made the effort to go, but all in vain as it had been cancelled.
Better organisation badly needed.

Too right lilly, I treked up there, kids aswell. Made a mug of us didn't they ???

Pierre seems to be rather quiet on this topic ??????

Hi Chips,

It's not our call.

Chips,

The poster in the gallery has already been amended to show the URL of this post, so people can see for themselves the issues. We do this all the time.

As aussiewelshman said, we can only post what info we are given.

We do not remove any data from the archive, just comment on them.

Maybe we should ban ALL organisations posting any information on things happening in the town in case its cancelled, postponed or simply does not live up to expectations?

You said I was quiet on this topic, what do you want me to do ?
Why would I be red faced trying to promote things that are happening in the town ?

Of course you remember agreeing to:

I phoned the lady Cath Parker several times yesterday and today but I was unable to speak to her pierre, she was unavailable.
Will try tomorrow and will post when I manage to get through to her.
No one else was able to help me.
Never mind, sure I'll calch her one day(maybe)

The man on the gate said that there WOULD NOT BE ANY CAR BOOT SALES THERE on any coming Sunday.

what a utter sham!!!! woke up late so decided just to go to the boot sale got there absolutley nothing!!!!!!!!!!!! yes there should have been a boot sale today but i am guessing the lack of advertising combined with the constant let down week after week has left bryn bach with egg on their faces.
according to the leaflet advertising the boot sales there is definetly one on next week so lets hope its better than this week where no cars turned up buyers yes sellers no...im glad i woke up late as i would have been the only one there.

So chippy,

Have you chased this up?

Just a little reminder, seeing as though the weekend is coming up.

Its sad that this whole Car Boot set up has been such a shambles. I think it would have taken off well up in Bryn Bach. A good idea spoiled by bad management. Trouble is, I believe you only get one shot at making a success of such a venture, and the organisers shot themselves right in the foot !!!
No one in there right mind is going to load up their cars and take their stuff up to Bryn Bach now, incase all the effort made is in vain.
As for me, well , they won't be making a mug out of me again on a Sunday morning. I don't believe any of the promises anymore.
What a fiasco.
