Join the St James Jumble Trail!

The St James Jumble Trail is set to take place around the St James area in September  2015.  To take part you simply need to register a stall on-line at  select what items you want to sell, tell us about this on the website and then set up a stall in your front garden. 

You can buy or sell arts, crafts, food and forgotten treasures as well as everything from vintage clothes to children's no longer needed toys.  

If you do not wish to have a stall then you can still come along, enjoy the friendly atmosphere and pick up a few bargains along the way.

Don't forget to send us your details

All stall holders will be entitled to a free marketing pack which we will supply. You need to simply send us your name and address to

Last year we had a whooping 120 stalls making our jumble trial the largest participatory activity for a Big Local area. Yes...St James Rocks!!!  

Since then other areas have caught on to the idea and have been creating their own Jumble Trail. 

This year we are hoping to reach 150 households, shops and communal garden areas and we need your help to get it going.  So far we have 29 stall registered, there is plenty of room for more.

If you would like any support and/or you are not on-line you can telephone our Community Worker Neesha Badhan on  07881 015 873 who will be happy to register a stall for you.
