Our twice-yearly Nearly New Sales are famous! Come and Bag a Bargain.
We hold Nearly New Sales at Vyners School in Ickenham, Middlesex in March and October.
Follow our NNS Facebook page for all the latest information about the sale - https://www.facebook.com/NCTHillingdonNNS
Over the last few years we have worked very hard to make our sales among the most successful in the country, and we were one of the first branches to receive the NCT's Gold Standard Award in recognition of the consistent high quality of our sales. We sell clothes for children from newborn to age 10, toys, children's books & dvds, baby equipment, parenting books, and equipment and we usually have an amazing variety of items at bargain prices. We also have a refreshment area serving drinks and home-made cakes.
We see our sales as a cornerstone of what the NCT represents -
- they help local parents buy essentials and treats for their families at very reasonable prices,
- they help families financially by enabling them to sell their great-quality used goods,
- they promote recycling.
- a great way for sellers and buyers to socialise and for volunteers to have fun and meet other parents
- put something back into the local community.
AND - we have raised tens of thousands of pounds to support our charity, both in Hillingdon and nationally.
We have around 90 sellers and these places are filled very quickly, so if you are interested in selling, please register VERY early to avoid disappointment. We start registering on a specified date 2-3 months before the sale, so please check the 'seller and buyer information' section of this website for details or the NNS facebook page.
The sale starts at 10:30am with NCT members admitted, non-members can enter at 11am and we are usually busy from then until the doors close at 12:30pm. Entrance is £2 per person before 11:45 and £1 per person from then until the sale ends.
The sale is organised by a team of local volunteers, including many of the sellers - the more volunteers we have the more smoothly the sale runs, which benefits buyers and sellers alike, as well as the NCT. If you are interested in volunteering for this event, or any others, please do get in touch, we'd love to hear from you. Many of our volunteers that help us to run the sale come back time after time, even when they are no longer buying or selling! We would like to say a big thank you to all of our volunteers, sellers and buyers who help make our sales such a success!
Our venue, Vyners School, is a large secondary school with lots of parking, very accessible at around a minute's drive from the A40 Swakeley's Road exit and only a few minutes from the M40/M25 interchange.
