Hi Geoff,

Sorry to trouble you, but I really thought I should tell you so you could make people aware. I come to all your Car Boot Sales and generally thoroughly enjoy myself. However last Sunday at the cattle market
I was sat in my car as my baby was asleep and everyone had just gone in to the car boot and literally within 5 minutes a white transit van drove in and a man got out and they tried everyone's door handles on their cars, looking through car windows etc.
This made me feel very vulnerable so I started my car and decided to leave. The men obviously didn't realize I was there and in startled them making them speed off like loonies. For us decent locals who love a bargain and a nice time these people are starting to ruin it for the rest of us.
I unfortunately didn't get a number plate but they were both short stocky men and both eastern European.
Kindest regards

STOLEN PROPERTY!!Posted: 04/12/2017
Sunday 26th November 2017 TRURO Car Boot Sale;
Due to the very poor weather it was decided to hold today’s sale inside the Cattle Pens. Sellers started arriving from 11.00 am onwards. I took my usual walk around the stalls as they were setting up.
I was concerned about 3 men who it seems traveled from up-country in a WHITE TRANSIT van to sell what amounted to a huge supply of good condition power tools. I was wanting to notify the Police as I assumed whether right or not that the tools had been stolen. As we got nearer to the start time Louise had to ask them to keep to their own stalls as they were wandering around asking other buyers to sell before the public were allowed in for the start time of 1.30 pm.
I told her of my concerns that the power tools were ‘stolen property’ and asked her to take pictures of the van the stall and hopefully of the men. The sale started at 1.30 pm I had decided not to notify the Police but to rely on the pictures Lou had taken as a precaution.
The 3 men traded well almost selling out to the eager buyers several had apparently bought the tools at BARGAIN PRICES to either sell on eBay or auction of keep them! By 3.00 pm the men were gone!!

Sunday 3rd of December 2017
As soon as I arrived some of the early sellers had told me that people who had bought the power tools had been put into Auctions and that the Police had reclaimed them on behalf of the original owners! So the tools had been stolen and if any of you readers bought any tools from this stall and you put them on eBay then my advice to you is that the ‘tools were stolen’ and whilst you were not aware they were stolen the Police have the power to reclaim the ‘STOLEN PROPERTY’ which you have purchased in good faith. Take a look at the 3 pictures if you do have any information I will try to get a crime reference number for you to inform the Police.

A loss of £400.00?Posted: 13/11/2017
Dear Geoff, I posted a message on the St Erne Community notice site regarding a friend of mine, and a lady replied saying you may know this couple and their phone number. Neither my friend or I, can get all the way down to Truro or Falmouth,, so hope you can help out with a phone number at all. Thank you, I’m sorry to be troubling you like this. Here is my posting:

Geoff Says; You will be some lucky my lover if someone comes forward and says 'I found four hundred quid in the bottom of a bin liner' I am afraid it ain't gonna happen but then the majority of the Cornish are honest clean living people so keep everything crossed is my advice!

TUESDAY at NEWQUAY is ON this week at 12.00 noon/WEDNESDAY at St Columb at 1.30 pm
Sellers should arrive at least one hour before start times ................. Got to give praise to Sunday at PENRYN with over 30 sellers and mostly new faces as sellers. Loads of real BARGAINS with one stall taking around £270.00 Thank you to all the locals and yes 'thank you to Ann' for heralding in the good news about PENRYN CAR BOOT SALE every SUNDAY at 3.00 pm up to end of season! Thursday is very doubtful at the moment with heavy rain forecast.

Tuesday 19th great day good weather and although the ground was soft we took a chance and the Car Boot started at 12.00 with 50 sellers enjoying the first opportunity to sell for the last 13 days and the buyers a huge crowd supported the sale carrying loads of bargains back to their cars mostly to be sold at up-country Car Boot Sales for at least double the price they have just paid you! A nice little earner from the Cornwall Car Boots what goes around comes around (allegedly)

What a lovely atmosphere no heated discussions no arguments no falling outs just a couple of hours doing as yer wanna do within reason (unfortunately)

There are still loads of holiday-makers around who enjoy the freedom of having their dogs with them at Newquay. So far this season we have had no complaints about dog poo nor the dog poo owners but beware if you have a small snatchable toy dog to be sold up-country within a day of it being stolen. Reminder, one blond Chiwawa was stolen a few weeks ago from Newquay and the children of the owner cry every day over their loss!

Next two three days look crap with heavy rain I will update information at 8.00 am each day!

Sorry MITCHELL Car Boot Sale is CANCELLED due to ground conditions and weather ................
Sorry we lost both Wadebridge and Falmouth on FRIDAY due mainly to the weather and ground conditions exacerbated by the FAIR being at the Rugby Club. We will have a fields inspection on SATURDAY at 7.30 am and report the decision if Mitchell Car Boot will happen. Latest at 7.45 am
it is CANCELLED ......................

Sunday Car Boots at St Columb at 1.30 pm ground inspections on Sunday depending on overnight rain and ground conditions! Sorry this is miserable to read due to weather conditions but it fair for me to advise that Newquay on Tuesday is looking unlikely. Be happy, I'm not!! Geoff x

HAYLE CANCELLED St COLUMB MAJOR CANCELLED Penryn unlikely do to weather and ground conditions! Sorry.Posted: 17/09/2017
Sorry to advise that the two Major SUNDAY Car Boot Sales (Hayle & St Columb Major) have been cancelled, so there! It is the fault of the weather and ground conditions and if we were to go onto the fields at either location with 100s of cars vans and lorries and earth people the grounds would be ruined for the rest of the season.

Do you know this man?Posted: 14/09/2017
Police have asked the public to help them identify this man
Police have made a fresh appeal for information relating to the sexual assault of a teenage girl on a train.
It took place as the 17-year-old was travelling home on the Newquay to Plymouth service from the Boardmasters music festival on 12 August.
Detectives from British Transport Police have released an image of a man they would like to speak to.
One other man is helping police with their inquiries.
More on this and other Devon and Cornwall stories
Det Con Matt Grieve said: "I would like to thank everybody who has provided us with information following our last appeal. However, I am still looking to identify this man. If you know who he is, then I would urge you to get in touch as soon as possible."

7.40 am; Saturday MITCHELL CAR BOOT SALE is CANCELLED to protect ground conditions
FIELD inspection at 7.30 am for decision for SATURDAY at MITCHELL at 8.00 am!! It's not looking good............ 7.40 am Landlord David did a field inspection and it was a unanimous decision that we CANCEL today's Car Boot Sale at MITCHELL to protect the excellent fields we have experienced over many years! Anyway I feel it's going to get worse and Sunday at St Columb looks doubtful due to the weather and the length of the grass in the public and selling areas. We could hold a 'find a four leaf clover' competition and the winner gets to bring their own cordless mower to mow their selling areas? Penryn Rugby Club need the money (don't we all) but I think the ground conditions may not be suitable, more to follow.
