The Dukes Meadows Community Centre in Chiswick hosts 3 youth club sessions a week, a kids drama club and bingo club for senior citizens on Thursdays.

The centre is run by volunteers and receives no local authority funding. Lettings to groups like the auction help pay to keep the centre going. The auction also holds a raffle every week in aid of the youth group.

Comment on this story on the

Community Auctions are somewhere between a boot fair and a conventional auction. you may get the occasional antique, but mainly you can pick up terrific bargains in modern day collectables, nearly new household equipment, ornaments and children's bikes etc. The atmosphere is informal and more relaxed than a regular auction, refreshments can be bought and there is usually a lively banter between the auctioneer and buyers.

If you have stuff that is too good to throw out, but don't have the time or the stamina to do a boot sale you can convert unwanted items into cash, quickly and easily, by putting them into a community auction. You also have the satisfaction of knowing that your unwanted goods, that still have some useful life, are being recycled rather than becoming part of the waste mountain.

Chiswick Community Auction has become a popular weekly event, and is steadily growing with approx. 250 lots in each sale. It is held in the Dukes Meadows Community Centre in Alexandra Gardens, just off the A316, every Monday Evening, Viewing starts at 5pm and the auction begins at 7pm.

For further information regarding buying or selling please contact Paul or Sharon on 0208 570 4553, mobile: 07887 797571.

The Auctions promote sustainability by recycling goods, the Chiswick Auction also helps the local community by holding a raffle each week to raise funds for the Youth Group, which also meets at the hall.
