Nailsea website entrepreneur award

SETTING up a website about car boot sales has netted a young Nailsea businessman an enterprise accolade.

Anthony Thomas, aged 23, received an Ernst & Young Striding Out Future 100 award at a ceremony in London.

Whatcarboot.com provides all the information needed to second hand goods fans who scour fields full of outdoor stalls every weekend.

Detailed listings, reviews and up-to-date information for potential buyers and sellers is available.

Anthony said: “The idea for the site and business came late last year from me and a friend going to car boot sales in the region.

“We found that getting good up-to-date information was difficult and unclear and thought there must be a way we can solve this.

“Soon afterwards the idea was put into writing and we started work on the site.”
