Rotherham residents have the chance for a Spring Clean as the Council launches a new Car Boot Sale in the Town Centre on Sunday 24 June 2018.

Located at Forge Island, next to the new temporary bus station, the car boot sale will take place every Sunday 7 am until 1 pm, with free entry for buyers and free children’s rides to keep the little ones entertained.

Pitches are priced competitively at £7 for cars and £11 for vans and trailers (no new goods). There is no need to book a space, traders can just turn up on the day.

Arriving at the car boot is easy and convenient with the temporary Bus Station located next door. There will be no public parking on Forge Island whilst the car boot takes place, although free parking is available off Corporation Street as well as in on-street bays nearby.

Cllr Denise Lelliott, Rotherham Council Cabinet Member for Jobs and the Local Economy said, “Rotherham’s Markets are already very popular so I am pleased to see this new car boot extend opportunities for the town centre.

“It’s a fantastic way to see how Forge Island and the wider town centre will be used in more diverse ways as the Masterplan plan takes shape, moving towards having more people living, socialising and working in the town centre.

“The car boot offers great value for traders with its competitive rates and hopefully visitors will be able to pick up lots of bargains too. And with easy access through public transport and ample free parking nearby, it’s a great opportunity to ignite a new era for Rotherham town centre on a Sunday.”
