Waiheke Scouts to continue popular car boot sale
Written by brent on March 26, 2012
The First Waiheke Sea Scouts are stepping up to help continue the Sunday car boot sale at Blackpool old school hall. The sale was previously run by Hey Dads organiser Uwe Spelhaupter who has gone to Germany for a while.
Paul Walden chairman of the scout committee said “when Uwe contacted the scouts to keep the car boot sale going we were happy to step up to the plate. The Sunday car boot sale is a great community event”.
The scouts plan to run the event and sausage sizzle as a much needed fundraiser to help reduce costs for fun activities such as camps and sailing. The scouts and cubs themselves will be taking some responsibly as they are involved each month on a roster.
As the Cubs camp is this weekend, the next scout run car boot sale is planned for the Easter weekend 8th of April. After that, it will revert back to the first Sunday of the month.
The scouts are also offering pitches to any food stall holders and local producers giving it that farmer’s market feel. Anyone interested in this should contact Diane Hearn on 0211216857.
“Sea Scouts has become engrained in our Island culture, developing confidence and leadership skills for our youth.The Waiheke group is going from strength to strength and this is a great way for the wider community to support our young people”
