Final Chipping Norton Car Boot Sale

The final Car Boot Sale to be held at Southcombe Farm near Chipping Norton will start at 8am on Saturday 23rd July 2011. After this, we have the Cotswold Music Festival on the 30th July and then we close our gates to enable us to concentrate on building Fairytale Farm. So if you still have those items in the loft that you know you will never use again, this is your last chance to sell them at our car boot sale and help to raise funds for Fairytale Farm. We hope to see you there!
