Records were smashed at the Rotary Club of Seaford’s latest Boot, Craft and Produce Fair at the Martello Fields in Seaford.

An impressive 77 pitches were sold and a whopping £859 was raised for good causes from the event on Sunday September 6.

Mike Hemmings from the Rotary Club said: “The club has known nothing like it since the early days of the Boot Fair project a few years ago when one August event raised nearly £1,000 for our charitable causes.

“This time, the sun shone on our efforts, possibly to make up for the complete wash-out in August, with the ice cream man selling just as much as the hot food truck.”

The group said there was even a rush on its Grand Charity Raffle tickets which will be sold again at the next Boot Fair on Sunday October 5 before Morrisons supermarket in Seaford takes over as host the following week, starting Thursday October 9.

Mike added: “This will be the last Boot Fair until next April, so clear the decks at home and come and take a stall.

“You will be surprised at what people will buy if you don’t ask too much.”

The Rotary Club raises money for local good causes by staging events throughout the year.
