A very warm welcome to our Autumn auction, our 998th sale since we opened back in 1825. Nearing our 1,000th auction is a very exciting prospect and something we will, as I am sure you can imagine, be celebrating accordingly.
I would just like to quash the rumours that I actually undertook our very first auction, which took place a year after we first opened during 1826. Although after many, many, many years of selling all types of properties across Sussex it might look as though I conducted that particular auction, I am pleased to say it was indeed our founder, Joseph Parsons!
Delighted to announce that Rockinghorse Children’s Charity will be the benefactors of this auction
Continuing our support of local charities, I am delighted to be able to announce that Rockinghorse Children’s Charity will be the benefactors of this auction, with the prize being an incredible thrilling flight in a vintage De Havilland Tiger Moth. Discover why generations of flyers have fallen in love with these nimble little planes. Following a pre-flight safety briefing, don a Biggles-style jacket before boarding the Tiger Moth in preparation for take-off. Once in the clouds, feel the incredible sensation of open cockpit aviation whilst enjoying breath-taking views as the pilot completes a series of incredible aerobatic manoeuvres (subject to weather conditions and at the pilot’s discretion). During the session, take the reins to get a genuine feel for piloting such an amazing craft. We would like to thank Dominic Williams and his team at ASC Finance for Business for very generously providing such a wonderful prize for me to be able to auction.
We do have a wonderful cross section of properties for you to buy within this auction so please do not hesitate to telephone either Jennifer or myself if you would like any further information, or indeed would like to make any appointments to view.
I very much look forward to seeing you on 26 September.
