Vinyl, books and all that jazz

Bargain hunters are set to head to Centenary Green in Wisbech for a monthly collectors’ market which is being launched on Saturday (August 31).

Vinyl albums, books and toys will go on sale at the market on the green adjoining Octavia Hill’s Birthplace House at 7 South Brink and the monthly event, staged on the last Saturday in each month, runs from 10.30am to 4pm.

Items priced at £5 or more will be sold on the upper green, while other items with a price tag below£5 will be found on the lower green.

Sellers wishing to book a table at a cost of £10 should telephone organizer Tammy Swiderski on 07917227066 or email the museum at info@octaviahill.org, leaving contact details.   All proceeds go to the Birthplace House, the first home of Wisbech’s most famous daughter, who became a celebrated social reformer and a co-founder of the National Trust.
