Our Risk Assessment will include all of these in the New Look:

  • Sellers must not go into the square of another seller until fully unpacked and invited to inspect goods.
  • Must adhere to our 2m barrier which we will provide per pitch
  • Bring their own sanitizer and PPE as good practice.

Buyers 

  • New parking layout
  • Pedestrian entrance
  • Disabled Parking Area at top of Middle Field. A Marshal will try to assist you if there are still spaces left.
  • One Direction customer flows around the sellers’ avenues to avoid free walking backward and forwards.
  • Social Distancing measures will in place and we will do our best to ensure they are adhered to.

So this summer we will open our gates to baaaargain hunters and super sellers! It’s a great reason to have a clear-out at home, make some space, and make a few £s too! Or use it as an opportunity to teach children how to make pocket money.
