NO FALMOUTH THIS YEAR DUE TO THE LACK OF SPACE and the CORONA VIRUS we are SORRY for ALL.
After 31 years this is the only year we will not be able to operate Car Boot Sales at Falmouth due mainly to the lack of space to operate the sales within the guidelines of Cornwall Council. Locals will know that the military are conducting tests also at the club grounds however if we had over 30 sellers and say 400 buyers ‘safe distancing’ is at risk therefore reluctantly we will not be at Falmouth Rugby Club this year. We look forward to returning during happier times for all customers buyers and sellers. Geoff

We have given great concern as to how we would operate the Car Boot Sale at Falmouth taking into consideration the lack of use of the complete pitch and our compliance with the Cornwall Council guidelines regarding safe-distancing.
May I address your concerns regarding damage to the pitch, we started Car Boots Cornwall in 1989 at Falmouth Rugby Club in those day we were allowed the full pitch, not once did we damage the pitch and if you returned to the ground two days later there is no evidence of us being on site.
Since Paul became groundsman we have been allowed little use of the pitch over recent years!
Taking all into consideration the Cornwall Council guidelines for safe and social and safe-distancing we regret that in the interest of Public Safety we cannot operate Car Boot Sales at Falmouth for the reasons as above, we will be happy to return when either the virus is under control or there is a relaxation of the guidelines.
We wish Falmouth every success in these dreadful times.
