Auction to raise funds for village playground
The residents of Beadnell and surrounding areas are once again having a clear out to support their local playground.
Beadnell Community Volunteers are holding a grand auction at 2pm on Sunday, August 5, in Beadnell WI Hall.
Already around 200 lots have been donated. These range from collectable items, furniture, linen, china, mirrors, toys, home baking and produce to paintings, garden machinery, a telescope, fishing and fly-tying equipment and a 2018 Red Bull Racing goodie bag. Two of the largest items are framed prints featuring aeroplanes.
The volunteers have also been donated 28 commercial-quality garden seats and tables by the owners of Beadnell Towers Hotel, which is currently undergoing renovation.
All the items for sale can be viewed on the Saturday afternoon and the Sunday morning prior to the auction. Bids can also be left.
