Secret Dealers

Secret Dealers are starting production on the fourth series of the antiques show and are looking to film in West Sussex next year. 

Secret Dealers sees three rival antique dealers doing battle in private homes for items they can sell. The competing dealers tour the house inspecting everything of value. The owners are then faced with a bonanza of surprise valuations and cash offers on some of their most prized (or not so prized) possessions. They can either accept or reject the offers and the owners must then face the choice between sentimental attachment and the chance to make a fast buck.

If you have antiques or collectables and are interested in applying or would like to know more then please contact the researcher, Katie Roberts on 0117 970 7674 or email  secretdealers@rdftelevision.com.

Bolney Volunteers




Introducing The Bolney Volunteers

Recently set up, Bolney Volunteers is a central register of parishioners willing to help in the village when needed. The type of activity might be helping to set up or clear up at Village day, keep footpaths under control, clearing rubbish around the village, set up events, or even just to give an opinion.

So often people are willing to give a bit of time but simply do not hear when help is needed. This is your chance to connect into the grapevine and stay informed of what is going on.

Bolney Volunteers enables members to be put on the register and to receive notification when and what type of help is needed, you decide if you can.

We welcome all and would encourage you to bring the kids, where appropriate.

To register with the volunteers; send your name, e-mail address and mobile number to aiden.mcgrath@bolney.com
