Car Boot Sale & Family Fun Day: A Look Back
The sun shone and the sunflower seeds were planted, and the 2022 Sustainable Skerries Car Boot Sale and Family Fun Day was a huge success, thanks to all who set up stall, to those who came and browsed and bought and enjoyed, and not least to Ernestine and her team of volunteers for all the work – and to Skerries Educate Together for letting us use the car park!
On Sunday 8th May, Sustainable Skerries had their work cut out, organising cars and bikes in Skerries Educate Together so each had a good spot to sell their once-loved wares. From food processors to foot massagers, hundreds of items found a new home that wasn’t the rubbish bin! And hundreds of people will have one less visit to the shops because they stumbled upon a much needed item, which was exactly what Sustainable Skerries were hoping to achieve.
Not only did the day achieve the goal of promoting a circular economy in a practical way but it also served as a sunny gathering for the Skerries community. There were many happy faces wandering around, having enjoyed the home-baked buns while the kids partook in games and had their faces painted.
Plans are now being made for another indoor version of the event, in the run up to Christmas. Details will be sent out in our newsletter so make sure you’re subscribed. You won’t want to miss it!
