Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is back on 12th March from 8am #carboot, 12th March 2017, 8:00 to 14:00 at Stonham Car Boot, Pettaugh Road, Stonham Aspal (14.9 miles)

Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is back on Sunday, 12th March 2017 and I am booking stalls already for the first one. (Covered stalls only can be booked). We are expecting 2017 to be our best one so far as we have grown every year and our popularity is still increasing. Everyone seems to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and non-aggressive buyers. The number of buyers and sellers has increased yearly and we are expecting records to go. Stonham itself sees many new shops and a new restaurant as well as the popular Owl Sanctuary, Golf/FootGolf and growing number of craft shops so, the whole experience on a Sunday is also improving.

As usual you can just turn up from 8am and sell from Five Pounds or alternatively use the Covered stalls (Ten Pounds) which are really popular and offer you the chance to sell without having to bring a table. Text your number plate to reserve one (07817539168). These are held till 8.15am only on a Sunday or text if you are coming but delayed. We are on the big field so there's loads of room without extra charges for space taken. When you enter Stonham take the left into the field and wait to be positioned. Gazebos welcome, especially when the weather is potentially poor. We will always try and open (last year we did not open on one Sunday in the season). Events often run at the same time as the Car Boot so make sure you check the Events page. These will start to appear in April and will be advertised on here as well.

Email: stonhambarnscarboot@hotmail.co.uk for information on the Car Boot and Events at Stonham Barns. Or better still ring me on 07817539168. Alternatively visit the web page, Facebook or twitter pages:

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt, Colchester (7.8 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
