Street boot first took place in Aug 2020 in Winterton. Set up by volunteer Councillor on Winterton Town Council, Mr Paul Mccartan and The Winterton & District Lions volunteer group.
After another Winterton street boot success in April 2021 the neighboring village of Winteringham decided to give it a go this Bank Holiday (Sunday 3rd May). Now it seems the street boot fever is spreading throughout the North Lincolnshire villages and small towns. Bringing people and communities together and getting rid of some unwanted possessions in the process.
It is a different experience to your standard car boot held in a field situation, for one, you get to walk around some lovely villages and take in the scenery and for the sellers it’s a bonus not having to load and unload the car 3 times. It’s friendly, interactive and a great day out for all the family with bargains to be had. You can even pick up some cracking items for free!!
It’s well organized and Paul kindly creates a numbered map with the stalls and houses to visit so you can plan your route. So check the event page for each Street boot location and download it beforehand.
*Top tip: If you do attend one of the villages and you aren’t familiar with the area, print out the map provided on the event page. It makes it a lot easier. Although the locals are pretty friendly and someone is usually willing to point you in the right direction. Also remember some stalls are spread out so be prepared for a bit of walking.
