ORGANISERS of charity car boot sales in the town could face fees of £30 a day after Barnsley Council proposed a change.

Although it's usually free, the council has put forward a fee structure in a review of licensing such events held outdoors for sporting, social, charity and political purposes.

If approved, the move will generate £4,000 a year in income for the council.

Under the new structure, organisers of charity car boots and those held outside schools would get their first two events in a year free - then have to pay £30 plus VAT for any additional days.

The council says Barnsley is one of the few authorities where these events are free of charge.

Their proposal will be discussed by Barnsley Council Cabinet on Wednesday.
