Unfortunately the Club will no longer be hosting the Mammoth Jumble Sale at the Bath and west Show Ground. Below are a few memories of that wonderful event.

For Many years now we have held our Annual Mammoth jumble sale at The Bath and West. This has been the main source of income for building our cart each year. It took a good 3 months of organizing, from Christmas to the beginning of April, when it was usually held. We start by distributing leaflets in shepton and the surrounding villages and arrange a date for the area collections. This took a lot of man power. The collecting did not stop there, it all had to be stored and sorted until the day of the sale. A week before the Jumble Sale, with many volunteers, the Showering's hall at the Bath & West was transformed into a massive furniture, brick-a-brack, clothes, household items, books and toy warehouse, this was a sight to be seen. It did not stop there, any items unsold had then to be disposed of, much of which went to the Salvation Army.

Sadly, through lack of manpower and rising costs, the jumble sale is no longer possible.
