Geoff Camden-Wiles
Geoff was born and educated in Croydon, Surrey. After spending 3 years at WINDSOR in HM The Life Guards he started his career back in Croydon at the famous Fairfield Halls as stage manager at the Peggy Ashcroft Theatre.

In 1964 he joined BUTLINS as Entertainments Manager at Filey and Skegness, applying for the position as General Manager of an entertainment complex comprising of Hofbrauhaus Bier Keller, Scamps Discotheques, Studios 1-4 Cinemas and Star Bingo & Social Club in Newcastle upon Tyne. Up to 18,000 customers weekly would attend the complex, which in the 1960's and 70's was a huge success.

In 1982 Geoff took over as Operations Manager at PONTINS in Brean Sands, Somerset where he met his lovely wife Louise. In 1989 they both started CARBOOTSCORNWALL at Falmouth Rugby Club and this year celebrate 21 years, with a potential of other locations being added during 2010.

At the Hofbrauhaus we employed 30 barmaids to serve this potent bier in HB stein glasses-the good old days!
Louise Camden-Wiles
Louise comes from Newcastle up Tyne and planned a life studying law and become a Legal Executive, but decided to join Geoff in setting up Car Boots Cornwall to is present day success. Louise is very popular with the regulars and the business has a good reputation of fairness to the sellers and buyers alike.

Gone are the days when it was the 'dealers only' who got the bargains, now the CAR  BOOT SALES start at the actual times advertised and at the 'sound of the horn' all buyers get the chance of the bargains.

This has been very successful, however there are still the odd dealers who harp on about the 'good old days' when they could "help the sellers to unload their cars" but Louise & Geoff believe in FAIR PLAY all round. During 2009 over 300,000 visits were made to our Car Boot Sales and a lot of the credit goes to ensuring the very few rules are strictly adhered to by all and sundry.

Our COMMUNITY CAR BOOT SALES are widely spoken of in the South West and the majority of our customers, sellers and buyers support the most popular Car Boot Sales in the South West of England.

PLEASE do not FEED the SEAGULLS only in your own back yards please!

There were a man at Newquay today waiting to talk to me and he didn’t look in a happy mood. As I walked towards him I notice he was wearing a navy blue boiler suit which had loads of white and seagull shite looking splodges on it so I am looking around to see where the seagulls were cos I were thinking he had been pebble dashed by a brigade of those sodding squealing sky shitting seagulls fed by the tourists at our public event FFS. But no, he wanted to complain that a dog had crapped in front of one of the stalls and people were treading it into their shoes.

On the way to investigate (where is the effing dog and its effing owners) two young mother complain to me that they had pushed their pushchairs through the mess which was sticking to the wheels. I mean WTF do these tourists from up-country feed their dogs I get used to seeing turds of all shapes and sizes (No! I am not talking about our customers FFS) but this lot looked like curried old gits haemorrhoid’s and it was still moving FFS and here am I faced with a ‘crap of a lifetime runny pile of shite’ problem, shall I just go home?
I do the usual by sticking bollards over the dog dung and tell Mr boiler suit the outcome of his observation and thanked him. But, how is it that everybody tells me after to dog have done its business? To all customers’ sellers or buyers alike please be more observant and tell me or Dog-Poo Warden Alice or any member of our staff if a dog dumps in front of you. By the way my observations of the man in the boiler suit, it seems he is a decorator who uses his boiler suit as a colour chart or he is very careless where he puts his brushes and rollers or he could have fallen into all of his pots of paint pissed out of his mind, who cares but it wasn’t the seagulls who splattered him I am reliably informed. Must get my eyes tested.
Those young mums will have had to wash their pushchairs when they got home and I do apologise to them. Are we getting closer to banning all dogs from the SELLING FIELDS where they will be restricted to the car park only, I think so but I would like your opinions please. I may use your email in part of Geoff Says but I will not disclose your address, which is a promise. Thanks for the emails.
Geoff
