Bargain hunters are encouraged to head to Feltwell on July 1 as residents prepare for their annual village yard sales day.

This year’s event, organised by Feltwell Fund-raisers, will see more than 60 homes holding sales from 9am to 2pm and will raise funds for SERV Norfolk Blood Bikes.

Vanessa Cock, the group’s chairman, said: “Yard sales day is great for many reasons, unwanted goods go to new owners rather than landfill, bargain hunters and second hand dealers all enjoy coming to visit and it’s great for community spirit.

“Residents love it because they can sell right from their own doorstep so there’s no limit to the size or amount they can display. In the past everything from beds to boats have changed hands.”

“We are pleased to be supporting SERV Norfolk Blood Bikes because it’s one of those charities that anyone of us may need help from most likely without really realising they exist,” she added.

A list of addresses and maps will be available from 8.30am on the day from St Mary’s Church, where visitors will also find the popular £1 an item stall and refreshments.
