Our next Nearly New Sale is on Saturday 11th November at Parklands High School. We have helper sessions
available for the Friday night, and throughout Saturday.

You can register to help at as many sessions as you like, even if they overlap. We are often short for the Friday
evening room setup and post sale sessions. A reminder that sellers need to register for and help at two full sessions
(one of which must be either during the sale (includes the Bumps and Babies session) or the post-sale tidy up) in order
to qualify for the reduced commission rate.

The special bumps and babies session is for helpers bringing non-mobile babies with them. This
session will run in a room away from the sale, where the tags of sold items are brought to be sorted out.

Apart from non-mobile babies, we regret we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 12 on the day
of the sale so please do not bring them with you if you are helping. Any helpers aged between 12 and 16 are
welcome to register but must attend with a parent or carer who remains responsible at all times. Please indicate
anyone under the age of 16 and we will allocate roles appropriately.

Children may attend the room setup session but remain the responsibility of the parent or carer at all times.

Please let us know when registering if you are a qualified First Aider.

If you are pregnant, bringing a baby with you, or have any physical or mobility issues, please let us know so that
we can allocate an appropriate role to you.

All registered helpers are welcome to join us for volunteers' pre-sale shopping at around 10.30 on sale day.
Volunteers are not allowed to reserve items before this time and will be asked to return items to the sale if they
attempt to do so.

Following registration, you will receive automated confirmation by email. After that, you may not hear from us
until the week before the sale when we send out role assignments. We accept every offer of help so please do not
think that you are not needed if we do not contact you between those times.

Registration has now closed.
