We are very grateful as always to Newbury Rotary for organising another “Silent Auction” for 2013 – they have helped us since our first show in 2007; the lots are still coming in but the list is looking good and there are lots of interesting things to bid for.
Please click here to go to the current list.
We are still accepting lots and looking for items like Sports Tickets, a days fishing or shooting, Meals or Accommodation, a weeks holiday in the Caribbean or (in particular) something money can’t (normally) buy.
When the time comes the process will be similar for 2013 – bids may be placed either in person to the auctioneer at the Gala Evening or at the West Woodhay Garden Show on the Saturday & Sunday. To keep informed on the bids on your chosen lot please call the Silent Auction phone line, the number of which will be provided nearer the time – you will be told the current high bid and may then enter your own higher bid. The bidding will continue until exactly 4.00 pm on Sunday 16th June, the last day of the West Woodhay Garden Show. At that time the highest bidder for each lot will win that lot and should collect try to their purchase from the Silent Auction stand by 5.00 pm. If two or more bidders are present and bidding when the auction closes, the auction will continue until only one bidder remains. If you are successful but are unable to be there on the day, please make arrangements for collection with the auctioneer.
Full conditions of the auction may be found in the catalogue, or click here.
When you do get to the Show please take a moment to browse the final list on the Auction boards as we are sure there will be something for everyone; the list of lots for 2013 will be available in due course, but we are expecting around 60 Lots to bid for.
