A total of 94 households are taking part in a town-wide garage sale in Burton Latimer today (Saturday).

The third annual event started at 10am and is due to finish at 4pm.

A wide range of items are 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.

“People from all across the town are taking part. It shows there’s a good community spirit.”
