Hi Geoff and Louise, season's greetings.

You might know already but we've just found out that Bridget Hoskin, from Bodmin, a stalwart of the car boot sales, that packed her van so tightly with stock and used every hour of the day to sell it, has recently passed away.

The only photo we have is the lone van picture on the front page of our website.

Sad to find out, she will be missed.

Stay lucky, kind regards,

Tony pp Dave Leek

Thank you Dave of Rosudgeon Cricket Club Car Boot Sales to let us know that Bridget Hoskins has passed away recently.

Bridget and CBC go back a very long way to when we first started our Car Boot Sales in particular she became very well known at Newquay when we started the sales over 18 years ago. She got me into trouble several times with other traders because she used to 'bend the rules' and get away with it according to them. Anything for a peaceful life with Bridget but her did have a great sense of humour. She had a young son who she would bring to the Car Boots come rain or come shine but as he got older he wanted to run around like any other normal child so Bridget came up with the novel idea 'let's put a bungee round his waist and attach it to our trailer once the Car Boot starts'
It was absolutely hilarious seeing the poor little bugger being catapulted all around Bridget's selling area but I had to tell her I could not allow her son to be bungeed all around my Car Boot Sale, however typical of Bridget she wouldn't listen and the boy remained tethered up until social services arrived following a complaint. Whilst it was a 'funny incident' it did not do the reputation of Car Boots Cornwall many favours.

Bridget loved Rosudgeon and all of her friends and regular customers will miss her from the Wednesday Sales.
I only have good vibes about Bridget with some memories that I could not print but she lived her life loving being with all the car boot people where she felt completely at home making her living supporting her family.

Sadly, I have no pictures of Bridget however if any readers can supply I will most certainly include it into this item.

Bless Up,

Geoff & Lou
