Grand Annual Street Sale
Every year since time began, we have all had stuff we want to get rid of. And NSMRA has provided the answer in our neighbourhood through the medium of the Grand Annual Street Sale.
So adjust your diaries to 31 August 2019 and mark that date with an indelible mark. For the Grand Annual Street Sale (GASS) 2019 will happen thereon.
So what is GASS?

The main activity takes place around the church, and tables are available there if you are far away.
But that is not all. Because before the Street Sale is the Beating of the Bounds. Imagine a benign Pied Piper of Hamelin, leading children on a willow-frond powered rampage through our streets.
