Ratby Yard Sale May 7th Bank Holiday 2018

What a nice way to end the weekend with the May bank holiday, over in Ratby this means it’s yard sales for the fourth consecutive year! What a fantastic sunny day we enjoyed with temperatures reaching a scorching 25 °C and not a cloud in sight all day.

This year we had a grand total of 59 sellers register via the website and because of the good weather we had a great turn out with buyers traveling in from the surrounding villages to bag some bargains.

All in all a great day was had with refreshments being provided in the Church rooms for all in need of a break and a cool down.


Ratby Yard Sale May 2nd Bank Holiday 2015

What a fabulous day was had by people participating in the first Ratby Yard Sales back in early May 2015. We were blessed with glorious weather and people came from far and wide: Derby; Ilkeston; Hinckley, in and around Leicester and of course from Ratby itself, thanks in part to the enthusiasm of Monica Winfield on BBC Radio Leicester.

We had in excess of 45 stall holders across the village, many of whom were delighted with their day’s work, getting rid of unwanted or unloved possessions.

The Parish Church had a lovely flow of people arriving throughout the day in search of a much needed cuppa and of course there were lovely homemade cakes for sustenance.

We would really appreciate your feedback, if you have any photos from the 2015 Ratby Yard Sale event please send them to us and we will add your pictures and feedback to this page.
