July News 2023

It has been a very busy few months for the team here at Windsor Auctions when we are not auctioneering, appraising or clearing houses, we are delighted to be supporting various charities and  local organisations.

The beginning of June saw us head up in to Windsor Great Park to supply compere’s for the hugely impressive Royal Windsor Flower Show and what an impressive job the team behind the show did.

It was a joy to be part of an Auctioneer Harry, backed up by Will had great fun all day and quite a substantial amount of cake as well !! It was lovely to see so many of our customers and thank you so much for coming over to say hi.

We would really suggest putting next years event, https://rwrhs.com/flower-show/ in your diary we know that the keen bakers and plant growers on our team will be entering the competitions will be there on the 8th June 2024.

We have also been lucky enough to be invited to auctioneer at a number of charity auctions this month and in this difficult times have been overwhelmed by the generosity of those bidding.

We sent Harry to Royal Ascot Golf Course at the invitation of Michael Hawkins and Ascot BNI to auction after their busy golf day and a great crowd to raise money for the charity Parenting Special Children

Next we sent him to a lovely evening at Windsor Guild Hall to raise money for humanitarian aid charity Embrace Me Foundation who were set up to send aid to Ukraine again a lovely crowd raised thousands in order to send yet more essential ambulances.

The highlight of Harry’s evening was auctioning a Brian May of Queen signed guitar and the generosity of the room. We understand from the organisers that they are putting together another even bigger event in September/October this year, watch this space and we will let you know all about it.

Next we are sending Harry off to Windsor & Eton Bowling Club which is always a superb evening and a lot of laughs so we will report back.

July is as busy as any month for us but we are looking forward to welcoming the team from Celebrity Antiques Road Trip on Friday 28th July recording an episode for later in the year.

As you may be aware Harry and Simon co host The Gavel and The Gabble podcast, troubling the podcast charts from the UK to Finland via Singapore and Poland. A mixture of interviews with some of the most recognised TV faces of the antiques world, people starting out in the business, trades, and pretty much anyone with a connection to the auction and antiques world. When not interviewing lots of chat about our lives as auctioneers.

However we would be delighted if you could spare them a vote for The Listeners Choice award in the British Podcast Awards, if only because Simon’s wife is voting for the excellent Table Manners, so we are one vote down already!!
