The 25th Sale at Richard Sandercock’s Milford Fairground Heritage Centre took place on Saturday 21st October.

It was remarkable how cheerful everybody remained in the face pf appalling weather. The Car parking team did amazing work in safely parking the vehicles of the 1000 or so people who attended. It was fortunate most of the lots were under cover but nobody stayed in the dry when the big lots were to be sold!
