Bank Holiday Car Boot- 31st May
Car boot sale at Heckington Pavilion.
We are proud to have lots of different stalls from boot sellers to plant suppliers and everything else in between.
On the dates the car boots run, they are open to the public from 07:00 with a prompt 12:00 finish due to our home cricket team matches on a Sunday.
We have marshals helping guide you both entering and exiting the pavilion’s ground and ask that all vehicles adhere to the 5mph speed limit across the whole site.

Car Boots Rules
We want everyone to enjoy attending car boots at Heckington Pavilion and as such we have just a few requests that we ask from our sellers, buyers and visitors which we have highlighted below.
If you are unsure of anything, please contact us direct with your query.
No Dogs Allowed
We are dog lovers at Heckington Pavilion, but as the field used for the car boot is a sports and playing field first and foremost we ask that you leave your four legged friends at home or if you need to bring them with you, please leave in the car with suitable ventilation and water. We do have a 5m perimeter strip around the playing fields which you are more than welcome to exercise dogs on a lead only.
We will have rubbish bins positioned around the playing fields at all times, however, this is for waste from products purchased at the pavilion and IS NOT for any waste produced from sellers or buyers unpacking items. As such we ask for all buyers and sellers to remove car boot waste when they leave site. Any seller caught disposing of their waste/unwanted items in the bins may receive a penalty.
Respect Each Other
We are all human beings at the end of the day and some may have better days than the other. We ask that you treat everyone with respect whether that is a marshal, other visitor or seller, we all deserve respect to be shown at all times. Anyone caught acting in a manner which is deemed inappropriate will be asked to leave the premises and may receive a ban from attending car boots in the future.
We have a very strict 5mph speed limit on site at all times, but during a car boot this is more important due to the amount of people attending the event itself. We urge you to drive as slow as you can and not exceed 5mph until you are off site and onto the main road. This is for the safety of all pedestrians and other vehicle users. There are children running around and we need to maintain safety for all.
