Local Car Booters will be pleased to hear that the February Çalış Car Boot Sale
will go ahead this month as planned.
The January sale was cancelled by the organisers, Çalış Children’s Charity,
much to the disappointment of many, due to problems encountered at the previous sale.
Charity committee members have now met with the Director of Fethiye Zabita,
(Fethiye Belediye’s Community Police), and are pleased to confirm that the next scheduled
sale on Sunday 22nd February will take place as usual.
The charity have decided not to introduce a prepayment scheme at the present time as many
stallholders attend from outside the area and also it is not possible to close off the car park
in advance of the sale.
Instead they have decided to continue with the “turn up and pay on the day” system that has
successfully been in place for the last 8 years but now have additional systems in place to
ensure that the event runs smoothly.
Zabita officers will also be present to support the committee and deal with any problems encountered.
Peter Clark, 3Cs chairman says:
We are still dependent upon the support and compliance of the stallholders
but we hope that, if they want the car boots to continue, they will ensure that
the conditions of the sale are adhered to.”
He stresses the importance of the car boot sales:
The sales are not only popular with the local community and help us to raise
money to pay for bursaries to enable students from poor families to attend university,
but they also help local businesses by bringing people into Çalış during the lean winter months.”
