There will be many new exhibits and a number of local items have been presented for annual exhibition.

There will be the usual display of medals, uniforms, artifacts brought from the Battlefields, grenades, scrolls, photographs, rolls of honour etc.

The ladies of Bushmills Presbyterian Church will be in chare of the teas and everyone can be assured of a very high standard of service from them.

Organisers have designed the sale as another great family day out with ‘something for all age groups’ and everyone will be warmly welcomed. Past sales have proved extremely popular drawing large crowds from far and near including the stallholders themselves.

For all those attending there will be plenty of catering options on offer. ‘Bethany Kitchen’ will be serving hot dogs, burgers and chips while inside the halls tea, coffee, soup, stew, sandwiches and cakes will be available.
