A Fine Day for Good Jumble in Clifton

Last year we hosted the beast from the east which kept our customers mostly at home.  This year we held our Jumble Sale on the last Saturday in March.  I believe our forward planning team thought it would give the snow time to melt and the daffodils time to show their faces.  Little did we know that we would have a heat wave in February, cherry blossom in mid-March and Mad March Hares eclipsed by a shower in Westminster!

Back to our Jumble Sale, Saturday 30th March dawned as a beautiful day for a trip to the coast and as we laid out all our wares, that morning; we hoped our regular customers would know that there should be more fine Saturdays this year.  Our bargains that day would be too good to miss.

I do believe they did; because at 1:30PM when the doors opened we greeted an eager queue of bargain seekers and for the next hour and a half experienced brisk trade in every department.

By 4:00PM Clifton Community Centre had returned to normality, the left-overs were sorted, packed and removed with our Jumble Team heading home.

I would like to thank everyone who helped us by donating or gathering the jumble, sorting it, setting up the hall, serving our customers and putting it all away afterwards.  You were a brilliant team, we couldn’t have done it without you. What are you doing next year?

Thank you too, to everyone who didn’t go to the coast for the day, but came to Clifton Community Centre instead and made it all worthwhile.  We really appreciate your participation.

Last but not least, our long-term planning team would appreciate an accurate weather forecast for Spring 2020
