THE Lancefield/Romsey Lions Club swap meet will be hosted next month at Romsey Park, bringing together the local community and car enthusiasts in search of ‘bargains’.
The swap meet will see a range of products being sold and potentially traded, primarily automotive, but also tools and other bric-a-brac.
Event coordinator Rusty Purchase says the event is great for community spirit, supporting multiple community groups within the Romsey/Lancefield area, including the local CFA.
“[The swap meet is] great for people not only to have a stall there if they’ve got something to sell, but also for the community to get along and support the Lions Club and the community at large,” he said.
“Obviously we’ve been shut down for a couple of years, so it’d be great to see some people come along and join.”
Mr Purchase hopes attendees will be able to source products at the swap meet that they’d been unable to find online or through other social media trading sites.
“People can really pick up a bargain and also maybe pick something up that they’re looking to do to restore their classic car,” he said.
The event will also see food and coffee vans available to attendees.
The swap meet will be held at Romsey Park on November 6, open to stall holders from 6am and the general public from 8am, being expected to run into the early afternoon.
