Blackwater Road, Newport, Isle of Wight PO30 3BE
Come along and join us at our monthly car boot sale which is taking place on Sunday 12th June at Newclose Cricket Ground (former temporary covid testing site) on Blackwater Road.
In 2020 and 2021, Newport Carnival, along with all the other Island carnivals, had to cancel their annual summer processions due to the pandemic. Because in 2022 Newport Carnival is celebrating 100 years, the committee put forward ideas to help make sure Newport Carnival will continue to put on a performance for many years to come.
One of the ways the committee thought of raising money for this community funded association was to host a car boot sale in September 2021. This proved such a success, Newport Carnival & Community Events Association are now holding monthly car boot sales throughout 2022 between April and September.
Entry to the site and parking is completely free of charge.
However, due to this event taking place as a fundraiser for Newport Carnival and our chosen charity, we do welcome a donation, however small or large it might be.
Previous Car Boot Sale Chosen Charities
September 2021 – Medina Marching Band
April 2022 – Isle of Wight Young Farmers Club
May 2022 – Wessex Cancer Trust
June 2022 – St George’s School, Newport
We normally hold our car boot sales at the Isle of Wight County Show Ground at Northwood, however, due to site unavailability, we are holding this months car boot sale at Newclose Cricket Ground at Blackwater.
There will be a burger van selling all your usual expectations along with drinks.
For added peace of mind, there are also toilet facilities at the Countyshow Ground.
Have you got some unwanted items that you wish to get rid of?
Do you have that wardrobe overflowing with clothes you will never wear again?
Have you got those spontaneous purchases that have never been used and wanting to move them on?
Do you sell at other Island car boot sales?
Or perhaps you have never sold at a car boot sale before and wanting to give it a try?
If you answer yes to any of them above then turn up on Sunday morning from 08:00 and pay just £5 per vehicle to have a pitch to sell your items.
Whether you are coming in a mini or a long-wheelbase van, the price stays the same. Your pitch is not limited to any strict sizing, if you need a 10m area to sell your items, feel free! First come, first served but we will try and accommodate everyone.
The only thing we do suggest, bring as much as you can, everyone loves a car boot sale!
