It's loft and garage clear out time!

Each year we have a number of Members who decide to have a “clear out” of their aviation “collectables” from a garage, bedroom, loft or garden shed…. These always prove very popular as the saying goes…” one persons rubbish is another persons treasure”.  So if you fancy trying to earn a bit of extra cash this may well be the occasion you've been waiting for. Take advantage of the Members Table prices OR – if you want TAS to sell it for you just e mail the Chairman


and we will arrange collection or a mutually convenient drop off and donate any proceeds to TAS funds or a nominated charity.
