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.

Did you see this? Update from Sunday 26th JUNE A horse called UNLUCKY

Remember I told you about young FLORA complaining about a horse in a shoe-box which was borne out by several complaints and confirmation that a horse was being kept in a dog-box according to some customers the horse was in some distress.

On Saturday morning we were told that the horse was at TRURO Cattle Market and the people looking after the animal were asking if they could bring it to MITCHELL in the afternoon to raise funds.

I asked to see the 'horse' which was a miniature horse or even pony about 16" tall it was lying in a bed in the back of an estate car.
For the benefit of all I will call the animal unlucky.

Unlucky was born premature with jelly front legs and very weak back legs all four legs were in splints and bandaging. The carers were wanting to raise money to pay for the vet to carry out treatment.

After checking on Unlucky's welfare I gave permission for the carers to bring the animal to MITCHELL insisting on milk, water, bedding and fresh air to be available at all times.

A local farmer Miles was overheard 'best thing for that is a sledge-hammer' which was a callous thing to say but it did reduce me to tears of laughter however I was pleased Miles was not overheard by the masses otherwise there could have been riots!

Shortly before 4.00 pm the paty and 'unlucky' left Mitchell to count up their takings towards the vet bills for remedial treatment.

I think their intention was kind but I was left with the impression that the little horse would probably suffer all its life in a deformed state unless you know of a vet who would do the repair work needed for nothing!

The lady in charge allowed 'unlucky' to wander around much to the pleasure of the kids and Mums, it seemed quite content with its freedom to walk in four splints without a zimmer frame!
Out came the cameras and just for FLORA I took a couple of pictures.

Bottom line: I think the animal was loved and well cared for under the circumstances but NO Car Boots Cornwall will NOT adopt the animal!

Best line was that the horse was 6ft tall until
FAT BLOKE got on..bring on the sledgehammer!

Amen

Geoff

ps; I told this story to posh Ann and she started crying.....with laughter...some people are so heartless.
