The event was organised by the Upwell Hall committee, who were thrilled with the turnout.

Secretary Ros Shorting said: “We had a fantastic turnout for Upwell’s second yard sale.

“Led by Brian and Linda Carr, parishioners paid £5 to open their yards all around the village from Small Lode, Townsend Road, Croft Road, St Peters Road and School Road to name just a few of the roads that took part.”

Visitors enjoyed refreshments at Upwell Hall, where they could pick up maps before exploring the sales around the village.
