  2. For early bird sellers, please be advised you will not be in your normal spot due to current restrictions. You must arrive no later than 6.00am.
  3. As a seller you are responsible for keeping yourself and your stall safe.
  4. We would ADVISE,following government guidelines, that sellers wear gloves/masks.
  5. REMINDER, all rubbish must be bagged and taken away with you.


  1. Are asked to abide by the social distancing guidelines and not to gather in large groups.
  2. The one way system, identifiable by the white arrows on the floor, should be followed at all times.
  3. If parking onsite we would appreciate it if you could have the correct money.
