A popular Sunday car boot sale could restart next month after coronavirus lockdown restrictions were eased by the government.

Harford Car Boot on Harford Park and Ride site, on the edge of Norwich, posted on its Facebook page: “We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you all at Harford on July 5.”

There were recent discussions between the carboot organisers and Norfolk County Council about possibly moving the carboot to Costessey Park and Ride because there was a chance of Harford Park and Ride being used as a COVID-19 testing site.

This means that there is now no need for the car boot to be relocated at the present time.”
