Bank Holiday Charity Boot Fairs – A Bumper Success

Our Peasmarsh Superstore played host to a number of Bank Holiday Charity Boot Fairs, with this year’s once again, proving very popular which in turn helped to raise a significant amount of money for local good causes.

This year’s car boots attracted hundreds of sellers and enthusiastic bargain hunters, with over £1,700’s being raised.

All the money from the sales of pitches and collections on the day where donated to Rye’s Bonfire Society, District Community Transport, Day Centre and Rother Responders.

Stephen Jempson said ‘Our annual Boot Fairs are a well-established event in the Jempson’s calendar. We take great pleasure in offering our services for the benefit of local good causes and the community over-all, these events are well organised and we hope that they will be even bigger and better when they return. Thank you to everyone who attended. We look forward to welcoming even more traders and bargain hunters to next year’s Bank Holiday events’.

We are delighted to announce that we will be merging and combining our bakery business with The Rye Bakery in June.

The new location will become a modern state of the art bakery, offering more room to supply Jempson’s stores as well as The Rye Bakery shops and the fast growing band of wholesale customers. The Rye Bakery branded goods will be distributed throughout Jempson’s stores.

The Rye Bakeries Glenn Croucher will be the production manager at the Rye site, and will oversee all production of bread and morning goods.

Stephen Jempson said of the merger “These are really exciting times, as this gives Jempson’s the opportunity to grow our Bakery production and the capability to open and supply more stores and cafés in the future” he continued “The convergence of the two companies will create economies of scale and synergies which will make the production unit that much more efficient and future proof the business for the 21st century”.
