Steven B. Bruce of Warwickshire have postponed their December sales following the latest in an unfortunate series of events which have disrupted their sales programme.
ATG readers may remember that two
years ago the auctioneers were forced to postpone their sale
because of snow, only to have to cancel the rescheduled auction
when someone drove into the nearby gas main on the morning it was
due to be held and everybody had to be evacuated from the vicinity
of Stratford-upon-Avon Racecourse.
This time the racecourse has been
flooded, as has The Paddock Suite, the sale venue at the
"All we need now is famine and
pestilence and we'll have had the complete set," a company
spokesman told ATG.
The flooding means the December 7 toy
sale and the December 8 antiques and collectors sale have been
postponed until Friday, January 11 at 2pm and Saturday, January 12
at 10am respectively.
