Car-boot Sale Comes Home


Shoppers in Crewe will be able to hunt for bargains in the newly-refurbished Lyceum Square, when the car-boot sale makes its return on Wednesday, December 8.

The event has been held in Oak Street every Wednesday since January, while building work on the £1.7m project was being carried out.

Cheshire East Council and the Northwest Regional Development Agency have jointly funded the scheme.

The outdoor market made its return to Lyceum Square on Monday, November 15, with the indoor-market traders already reporting an increase in footfall.

The square’s revamp included remodelling and repaving as well as the installation of a brand new café area and public toilets, plus revision of the parking area and new disabled parking spaces. New seating areas have also been added.

Councillor Rod Menlove, Cabinet member with responsibility for environmental services, said: “The return of the car-boot sale to Lyceum Square is excellent news and one that will benefit both shoppers and market traders.

“Crewe now has a state-of-the-art public space that enhances the Cheshire East environment. I hope people will support local businesses in the run up to Christmas.”

Cllr Peggy Martin, ward member for Crewe East, said: “Lyceum Square is now open for business and the return of the car-boot sale will only help boost local trade.

“The people of Crewe love a bargain and I have no doubt these events will prove very popular.”
