The Ger­rards Cross Jum­ble Sale was held on Fri­day and Satur­day last week at the Memo­rial Cen­tre.

A vast ar­ray of items in­cluded toys, hard­ware, books, cloth­ing and crafts.

The event was or­gan­ised by Ger­rards Cross Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion, with the help of a team of vol­un­teers.

Suzie Bower, of the as­so­ci­a­tion, said: “It was fan­tas­tic. We had so many peo­ple com­ing along, and we had more jum­ble than ever be­fore be­ing do­nated.

“The weather was great, so that helped. Ev­ery­thing went in our favour re­ally.”
