HTH strongly recommends checking the weather conditions before making the journey – we do continue to operate come rain or shine. It is your decision to attend the event. However, in the case of extreme weather conditions we will cancel the event and put up a notification of this on our website and Face book page before the event starts.

Due to our Car Boot Sales being busy, if you have booked a pitch & then are no longer are able to attend, we ask that you cancel your pitch (Either by email or text) by 6pm the day before.
