We had reported in ATG No 2379 that the first of Manwaring's 2019 brocantes in Whitstable would take place on Saturday, April 20.

However Manwaring has got in touch to say this will not be running because “as I have recently had my 80th birthday, we are taking a well-earned sabbatical this year”.

She adds that in 2020 the brocantes will be taken over by her daughters Deborah and Pippa Mack.

More news on this later.
