|Falmouth students praise..... 3 pictures|
Lou & I have known all the groups of students who have come to Falmouth University to further their education and we can seriously say they have been a superb crowd each year since we started Car Boots Cornwall way back in 1989 and they certainly have supported the weekly Car Boot Sales at Falmouth Rugby club.
Come and support them and their effort to raise cash for a special project.

Message: Hiya, I am a student at Falmouth University, and I and the rest of my film crew where wondering if it would be possible to have a cake sale at one of your car boot sales as a way to raise money for a final film project at University? (are preferred place would be at the Falmouth rugby club, as it is the closest place to us) If you could get back to me as soon as possible it would be most appreciated Samantha Mcleod Student Producer Falmouth University

We allowed this idea several years ago from Falmouth University the cake display looked horrific and got ‘sweaty’ because the cakes were not covered up in the sun.
You may try again on one occasion only but I do give a friendly warning if the display is not to a high standard then I will close your stall down.

Thank you for giving us this opportunity, it’s very much appreciated.
Do we need to let you know which week we plan on attending or can we arrive for whichever we like?
Also are there any suggestions you would give to us regarding making our display up to a suitably high standard?

To help you raise the funds you need I will give you a FREE stall for the day but remember you must ensure the cakes are covered. The more ladies involved in this project the happier I will be, several years ago the student group
I refer to below all lad who had emptied all their cupboards end of season bit and bobs including flour, suet, cannabis seeds, weeds, magic mushrooms and left over jams of the season and they threw the lot into a mix covered with a slime of chocolate and cream and it was melting and looked hideous and was only 50 p a portion. (it was a bloody good laugh and endeared the students to the Car Boot crowd)
The lads had great sense of humours all afternoon as I stood begging customers not to buy their crap food. At the end of the boot sale they stopped one of the team and said “Give that to the bald bloke, tell him thanks” inside the bag were 4 of their delightful portions of 50 p Great fun, I believe two of them were stoned! I also believe the cake went into the bin and certainly not through my system.
Just go for it, if you want to promote your idea send me some detail and I will put it into the Geoff Says column 18,000 hits per month!
It occurs to me that you will know Ragnhild Jaatun who is on a photography course at your University she would be a huge asset to you having a good day; she knows how to work a crowd!
Your most important priority is to choose a day that the weather is dry so watch the weather forecasts? Just be hygienic on your stall and offer your customers some “Student Home-Bake” surprise yourselves, bring your mums & dads and enjoy your day!
You should think of arriving to set up your stall at 11.00 am with your tables, covering, stocks, paper bags, cake grips, blue or white plastic gloves, hand gels & nice clean clothing.
Do I have your permission to include these emails in Geoff Says please?

Hi Mr Wiles,
That would be a great help thank you very much! I don't think we are planning to come and sell our cakes until Friday the 13th of November (unless the weather is hideous),
so we can ensure we have got everything we need! But I can assure you our cakes will be nothing like the lads you let in before :-)
Of course! Feel free to use these emails :-)
We already have a Kick-starter page where people can donate money to our project, but in summary we are making an Experimental film looking at technology and how it is used, we plan to explore with different camera's etc. People who donate certain amounts to us will receive a reward (the rewards are explained on the page)

Thanks so much
