The Rochester Community Garage Sale on December 8 aims to attract visitors to town.

Rochester Chamber of Commerce organiser Alan Darbyshire said he hoped to secure 60 garage sale sites.

‘‘We encourage people to participate by putting up items for sale that day, whether it be just an old cupboard on the front lawn or a shed full of pre-loved items,’’ he said.

Residents will not pay a fee to sell their goods but are encouraged to register at Baker’s newsagency so their names can be included on a town map highlighting the various sites.

The map will be available to shoppers so they can easily find the different garage sales.

Mr Darbyshire said it was a way to bring people to town to spend money.
