COVID-19 Safety Arrangements

In these difficult times we have modified our operating procedure to enable all of the people that use our boot sale to stay safe - Please read this carefully



Entry to Sale Site
The gate will revert to a pedestrian only entry point once all of the sellers have entered and have set up their stalls. Bollards will be used to divide the gateway between Entry and Exit. The earliest that buyers will be allowed in is 1:30 pm.

Buyers will be requested to ‘chuck the money in a bucket’ and no change will be given.

Social Distancing
Buyers will be asked to remain at least 1 metre apart on site and use common sense when browsing stalls. It is considered that due to the open-air nature of the site and the large amount of space available, the risks will far be less than that encountered in an indoor super-market.

Use common sense when parking. There is plenty of space and the risks should be no less than parking in a public car park as parking spaces will not be delineated. If necessary, marshals will be used to help with car parking.

Quick Check List For Buyers


Entry to Sale Site
A strict sellers only period will be enforced.  As there is just one gate normally used by both sellers and buyers, sellers will only be allowed on site up to 1:30 pm through the normal gate to the sales area. Sellers will be given time to set up without being pestered by buyers. Once the buyers have entered no more sellers will be admitted by the main gate.

Fees will be simplified and we are proposing to charge just a flat fee of £5 per vehicle to reduce the requirement to provide change. This will mean a potential loss of income but it is felt that this is preferable to having to deal with change. Those who pay with cash will be asked to ‘chuck the money in the bucket’. A money sanitising sterilising bucket will be used for all cash taken.

Social Distancing
Due to the amount of space available we do not propose operating a one-way policy in the sale area. Marshals will place sellers in orderly lines at least 1 metre apart and cones will be utilised to identify pitches. There will be plenty of space between lines to enable buyers to move freely in both directions.

Exit for sellers
Sellers will be requested not to leave until the boot sale closes but if they must leave a separate exit gate will be created at the bottom of the site.
