The Aveo Hampton Heath retirement village in Hampton Park held its annual garage sale earlier this month to promote the village and engage with the wider community.
Over 60 people attended the annual event, which continues to grow each year, while 20 village residents assisted on the day. The Aveo Hampton Heath residents committee prepared for the garage sale all week, tagging and pricing goods. With over 500 items on sale, most were pre-loved but there were some new items for sale. On the day, the first eager buyers arrived early at around 7:30am and from that point, a steady stream of people continued to flow through the village throughout the day. Village Manager, Manny Vella worked hard manning the barbeque all day and the village sales team raffled a hamper for those visitors who registered to inspect the units on the day.
By all accounts it was a great day for the village with a few dollars raised as an added bonus.
