Car Boot Sales

Car Boot Sales 2020 

It is with much regret that due to the risk to the public and our members that COVID-19 presents it has has been decided that we will not be able to stage any Car Boot Sales this year. 
Thank you and stay safe.

We will restart in June 2020 (see above) when the hay has been cut, and they will take place every Sunday morning thereafter (subject to the weather conditions) throughout the summer months (mid-late June to end September) in two fields at West Wayland next to the camping and caravanning holiday park. The official open hours are 08:00 to 12:00 although many regular sellers arrive from 07:00. The location is rural with extensive sea views adding to the enjoyment of the occasion.

Sellers are charged a pitch fee of £5 (however large pitches may be charged more at the discretion of the Lions Committee). There is no requirement to book a pitch, just turn up. No traders. There is no entry fee or car parking fee for buyers except on the day of the Looe Lions Carnival Rally when there is a charge of £2 per car which also allows the occupants access to the rally and its many attractions. Whilst there is no entry fee for buyers please buy a  Duck Race ticket or two from us at the entrance (you might win £1,000 if you do) or just put a donation in the bucket as we give our time freely to make money for the charities and good causes that we support..

We have a refreshment van selling bacon butties etc and hot & cold drinks etc. and an ice cream van providing something cooler. There is a toilet block in the adjacent caravan park.

You can call the recorded information line on 07530 690717 for up to date information and whether the sale has been cancelled due to the weather (Please note that this is an information only line and messages will not be listened to). The message will be issued on the Saturday evening and, if necessary, updated at 07:00 on the day of the car boot when we know the actual weather and the state of the field, but generally if it is dry there will be a car boot sale.
