Car numberplates up for auction

THE annual auction of Jersey numberplates will take place on 9 April this year in aid of community safety.

THE annual auction of Jersey numberplates will take place on 9 April this year in aid of community safety.

Last year £71,000 was raised at the auction, which has been run in Jersey since 1998.

The administrative services manager at Driver and Vehi- cle Standards, Jim Sinclair, said: 'It was set up following a decision by the then president of the Defence Committee, Deputy Mike Wavell.

The idea was to sell the plates and put the proceeds into a community safety fund.

'Anybody who had a project which would make the public more safe - the promotion of fire alarms, for instance - could apply for funds.' Last year JSY 220 sold for £4,300 and JSY 221 for £4,200.

But it was JSY 6 which made the most for the community fund when it sold for £5,900.
