Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Camilla Good­man camilla.good­man@trin­i­tymir­

BAR­GAIN hun­ters will be in their el­e­ment at Che­sham’s first ever jum­ble trail this month.

Char­ity Mind the Gap Bucks has or­gan­ised the first Che­sham Jum­ble Trail to take place on Sun­day, Septem­ber 20 be­tween 11am and 3pm.

A jum­ble trail is like a car boot sale, but in the street.

Com­mu­ni­ties co­or­di­nate to set up stalls out­side their homes to sell bric-a-brac, toys, vintage clothes, cakes, veg­eta­bles or what­ever they want.

The whole thing is co­or­di­nated online, pro­vid­ing visi­tors with a colour coded map to ex­plore the trea­sure on sale in the neigh­bour­hood.

The char­ity is urg­ing peo­ple in the town to ei­ther have a stall or shop at the event.

Trustee and vol­un­teer at Mind the Gap Bucks Smitha Veet­til said: “Che­sham Jum­ble Trail is a com­mu­nity event – it’s an ice-breaker, an easy way to talk to neigh­bours who you don’t get to meet very of­ten and to get to know your street.

“A lot of Che­sham res­i­dents may want to con­trib­ute to the com­mu­nity ei­ther in time or money, but they don’t know how to.

“This event will make them aware of us, Mind The Gap Bucks, and also give them an op­tion to con­trib­ute to Mind The Gap. It’s not manda­tory to con­trib­ute, but should they wish they can.

“Lastly, who doesn’t like a good bar­gain? Street sales are bril­liant places to bag a bar­gain!”

So far six stalls have been reg­is­tered, in­clud­ing one out­side Che­sham’s mayor Peter Hud­son’s home in Hos­pi­tal Hill.

He added: “I think the Jum­ble Trail is a su­per idea and will be a fun event which ev­ery­one in Che­sham and get in­volved in, while at the same time rais­ing money for a great lo­cal vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tion, Mind the Gap, which does so much to sup­port lo­cal peo­ple.

“I’ve al­ready booked a stall from my own home and I’m look­ing for­ward to shar­ing a cup of tea with visi­tors on the day and help­ing Mind the Gap in the process.”
