A total of 94 households took part in a town-wide garage sale in Burton Latimer on Saturday, August 17.

People from across the town participated in the third annual event.

A wide range of items were on sale, including toys, books, clothing, bric-a-brac and tools.

Organiser Janet Kirton said the sale usually raises £800. This year’s proceeds will be going to the Children’s Society.

She said: “We were due to start at 10am, but people were already around from 9am.

“We had a wide range of things on sale. People from all across the town took part.

“It shows there’s a good community spirit.”
