It’s going, going gone at the Shay!

HOUSES were going, going, gone at the first auction to be held in the Shay’s new East Stand.

Eleven properties and two pieces of land were up for grabs at a sale organised by Brearley-Greens estate agents.

Richard Green, residential partner at Brearley-Greens, said: “It went very well. It’s always a bit concerning in the current climate knowing what will happen.

“All the main lots sold so we and the clients are very happy.

Around 150 people filled one of the function rooms at the sports stadium and the sale grossed £846,000.

“You have got to have the right amount of space and the Shay function room was perfect for that,” said Mr Green.

“It’s also at the heart of Calderdale so it’s easy for people to get to and I’ve been watching sport here since I was a child so it’s nice to put something back.”

Mr Green said it was so successful they now plan to hold further auctions at the ground in the future.
