No STUDENT cakes please!

Reminder; you must not sell food & cakes! A look back at 2003 updated July 2012
It is not a good idea to think ‘I will bake some cakes to sell at the Car Boot Sale because we will not let you! Over last weekend I had to stop 2 sellers from selling what looked like quite nice cakes but without showing us your FOOD HANDLING CERTIFICATE & Public Liability Insurance evidence and we will need copies for our files. WE must know the sellers who have to be approved by ourselves and in most cases the TRADING STANDARDS & the Health Authorities carry out checks and inspections at the homes of people authorised to sell at our sales.
LTC Catering/Roseworthy Farms are our only authorised caterers.

Several years ago at Falmouth Rugby Club it was end of term for the students each year they use our Car Boots to get rid of unwanted items. We had a complaint about ‘suspect looking cakes’ being sold by one group of 4 students selling up! The three open brown cardboard boxes were displaying fairy cakes of a different nature double in size and looking like YUCK with hundreds and thousands melting in the sun and sliding into messy chocolate goo on the cardboard plates.
“Who made these” We all did last night with the stuff left in the cupboards otherwise we would have thrown it out, was the reply. “Well you are not selling them here they look dreadful are you trying to kill off my customers with the cakes they are sweating and melting in the sun” With a good sense of humour they reluctantly took the offending cakes off their stall.
At the end of the sale John told me some students (the same 4)as they were leaving said they had a great time and handed me three cakes saying “Give these to the BALD bloke” Cheeky sods! (I nearly kept them because I knew Mother-in-Law was due a visit)
We love the students but it’s great when they all go for their holidays and return after their break. When they come back they are cash rich from bleeding their parents dry which is the time to be nice and call them Sir & Madam because they spend well but when they are ‘hard up’ it is amazing some of the absolute CRAP they would try to sell to us in our second hand shop Dig & Delve-Falmouth in the good old days.

Our experiences with the students over the years has been favourable they have always shown respect to us and our customers at the Car Boot Sales where they have been understandably tight fisted in their spending money, long pockets-short arms known as ‘an impediment in their reach’ but they are a great crowd. Thank you.....Geoff & Lou....x
