Breakfast & Auto Jumble at Newclose 14th Sept 2021 This well advertised event went ahead as planned, The 8 boxes of spares and mystery items donated to us by a non member who was leaving the island. She called me some weeks ago to say that if I did not collect it the next day it was going in the skip!. Duly collected from darkest Binstead, Jan allowed me to store it in the Summer House. The day dawned pouring with rain which possibly put a few of you off, (Shame). Fortunately after explaining the scenario, Nikki the Newclose manager allowed us to set up the tables and jumble indoors and was also most helpful. 21 people sat down to eat at 6 per table for social distancing, the breakfast which at £7.95 a head inc tea or coffee was well worth the money. Some members made the effort to bring more items for us to view and buy which swelled the amount on offer significantly. After much rummaging and searching for the essential bargain, £100 was raised for Mountbatten Hospice. Thanks to those who made the event a mini success. We were going to dump the remaining unsold items but as much was deemed still very saleable we propose to keep it until Spring to do a more advertised version. So please come along next time. As one member said, he is going home with more than he brought to sell. Members donated a portion of money from sales of their private items. Jan has said we can use the Summer House over the winter but I am now sleeping in the shed, donations of warm clothing appreciated. Peter Hodgson
