Face masks must be worn, hand sanitisers will be placed all around the saleroom and must be used before and after handling any items to be sold. Registration forms must also be completed by all visitors to Milton Hall, including vendors dropping off and hauliers collecting items Friday morning.

It is a difficult time for all and if we can stick to the Covid-19 regulations, all being well we can make it a successful sale for all.
