Vide Grenier Task List

Vide Grenier Task List

We have barely taken down the village Christmas decorations and yesterday evening a meeting was called to organise one of Reminiac’s big events of the year, the Vide Grenier (car boot sale)!

Following the success of Reminiac’s first Vide Grenier last year, there is much enthusiasm to repeat this success.

The presidente of the Vide Grenier Association started the meeting by passing round a list of tasks and inviting everyone to volunteer for a task, or two..

After much debate it was agreed that the fairest way would be to charge per linear metre.
