Henley’s first yard sale took place on the Gainsborough estate on Saturday with around 20 houses taking part.
The idea was Gainsborough resident Sarah Cronin and was organised by Gainsborough Residents’ Association Vice Chair, Paula Isaac. She said, “Sarah and I discussed it last year but because of Covid and all the restrictions in place we thought it was a safe time to do it now the restrictions are lifted and its outside. We’ve had jumble sales previously at the Scout Hut but that was indoors and we thought this was a safer way of doing it. We’re pleased with the take up and hopefully next time there will be more people taking part. These things normally take time to grow. Sarah added, “I think it went well for the first one with a good turnout of stalls and attendees, and I am looking forward to more in the future.”
Local photographer Martin Cook was selling some of his stunning photographs he has taken in the area. Kellie Hinton and her family were visiting Martin’s house where she brought one of Martin’s black and white tree canvases. She said afterwards, “Thanks for doing the sale. We came away with so many bargains and treasures! Really want our road to do a similar event!”
