Apparently  the new owners have big plans for Vicar Lane.
I look forward to seeing these changes.
Do we think it will bring more footfall into the centre?
i think that nothing will bring it back to the way it used to be, in days gone by if i wanted to buy someting i would pop into town and look round the shops that may stock the items required, if the same situation arises now my first port of call is online, a lot of the stuff i have bought over the years are technology items and for this ebay has been a godsend as some of the items are quite specialist, i used to have to go over to bardwells at sheffield or R F Potts at derby now i can buy these items direct from china without sacrificing quality and at a fraction of the price, also if it was not for the flea market there would be no market worth talking about other than the fruit and veg stalls. i think we just have to accept that the high street as we once knew it has had its day, and yes i do miss Woolies, Littlewoods, Hudsons and the CO-OP to name just a few.

Chesterfield Discussion / Chesterfield Car Boot sale good news

i spoke today to the head steward who runs the car boot sale and he stated to me that the car boot sale will in future be run without imposing a thirty car limit, this is great news for both sellers and buyers and should help to build up this local attraction to its former position of being one of the best car boot salesfor miles around. :)

and the reason this king invented the church of england was, well to put it bluntly he wanted to get his leg over with someone other than his wife and the pope would not grant him a divorce, so the self same people who preach to us about morality are in an organisation borne out of what they would call the original sin, you could not make it up.

though not as evil as the security guards mentioned nor the abusive and unacountable council who hold us to account for any minor misdemeanours we might commit (like dropping litter or overstaying in a car park) while first denying and then covering up their own and their security guards criminal behaviour, which include assault and batery and criminal breaches of the data protection act, and all the time pretending to listen to and to keep the people of chesterfield safe, particularly the vulnerable what a bunch of lying unprincipalled scumbags.

It will soon be bye bye carboot at the Proact. They're stopping it in July  :-X
the rumour mill is working overtime and the concensus is that it will be on the car park directly behind the town hall when walking across it the other day i counted up roughly the lines of cars and the rows and my rough calculation is that it will hold 150-175 cars, back when it was run on the donut, for the xmas sales they moved it to here, and even though it was winter it still used to get three quater full, and now due to the constant refusal to run the car boot by the stewards at the football ground they are having trouble getting thirty vehicles, i wonder if they even have a clue as to why the disparity.

Across from the shops on sea front.

Seems they are plugging the Car Boot saying over 150 pitches available....
thats if they decide to run it on the day, note it does not say anything about a 30 car limit, or the fact that they are finishing running it in july due to it not being finacially viable, considering how they misrun it i for one am not surprised it is not financially viable as they have by calling it off to often driven a lot of the regulars away, and when you consider these are mostly people with vans who are charged at least double a cars standing fee, why would you alienate your best cash flow providers.

frankly i do not giva damn about the irish border, i do not think there should be one, i say give ireland back to the irish, problem solved and if the prodos dont like it they should move to england or scotland or wherever they claim to have allegiance to, by the way i have no religious affiliations i just think that english rule has not been good for the island of ireland.

I was biting my tongue. I wanted to say was it the security staff from the Pavements lol  :) (y)
oh come on they maybe incompetent at running a car boot,  but at least they are not abusive liars going round attacking innocent disabled people (and then denying it) for no other reason than giving themselves a massive hard on.  ;)

i have today been informed that another of the stall holders has given up on Chesterfield Car Boot Sale and that last sundays debacle was the final straw, i will not say who this person is however i can tell you he has a van so it costs him double the car rate to stand and he first started going to the boot sale back when it was on the donut car park and has been a regular ever since, he has decided to move his business to Doncaster Car boot sale where a large amount of chesterfields regulars have chosen to move to. :(

Today i received an email from Graham Bean Executive Director of the football club who states the following in his response to my enquiry, "In regards to the point that you have raised regarding the 30 vehicle limit I have made enquiries but have not been able to ascertain from whom that directive came but it would not appear to have come direct from the Club." this is a direct copy and paste from his email, i can only guess as to where the directive came from and if i was forced to make a guess i would say it comes from people who are on the clock and getting paid wether the car boot sale runs or not, i have my own ideas as to the identity of the persons involved but i will leave it up to the readers to make their own decisions.

I need to amend a prevous staement it is not thirty five miles there and back to Doncaster, but thirty five miles there and thirty five miles back a round trip of seventy miles to go to an event which we have on our own doorstep should we use an organisation competent enough to ensure that the event went ahead (which we don't). >:(

Never went to the donut market and I didn't know it had moved.
Is then current car boot sale  attended well with sellers? ( when it's open  ::) )
It has always been well attended by both sellers and buyers i have seen the town centre car park covered in frost and yet loads of people still used to turn up.
The people charged with running it for the last few years have by not running it for a variety of seemingly spurious reasons have caused people to look for alternatives and to go elsewhere and have created the very condititions (less than thirty vehicles) that now gives them an excuse not to run it. also a lot of sellers have taken to coming a bit later so they can see if its on and then joining the cars selling to prevent them having to wait upto two hours only to be told its not running.
