WPCS OFFICIAL sales update

Covid Regulations for Salegoers

Following the Welsh Government implementation of a Covid Passport in Wales from today McCartneys the official auctioneers, would like to clarify the position for those attending the sale this coming weekend.

As the event is an all-seated event then Covid passes do not need to be shown at the entrance gate. However, masks must be worn in the indoor auction arena of the South Glamorgan Hall. This is a government regulation.



All vendors who have email addresses have now been sent the ‘pdf catalogue’ and the hard copy, with your passes has been sent by first class post today from the auctioneers.

PDF catalogues – all ordered and paid for ‘pdf catalogues’ have been sent.

Hard copy catalogues – all persons who have paid for, and ordered a hard copy to be posted, have been offered a free ‘pdf copy’ in the interim.

Please do not contact the WPCS office for catalogues as McCartneys are responsible for the sale. The WPCS does not have any catalogues.


Additional entries

There are three additional Saturday entries which were regrettably omitted from the catalogue, for which the auctioneers apologise. These will be shared online from tomorrow onwards and an additional entry sheet will be available at the sale on Saturday.


Online behaviour

The Society is extremely disappointed that some individuals have taken it upon themselves to share electronic copies of the ‘pdf catalogue’ or posted a download link online without permission. The sale is staged to enable members to sell stock to as wide an audience as possible. It is a commercial venture for the official auctioneers where the income stream from the sale of catalogues is critical to the profitability and viability of the sale itself.

This is a new venture – with a new auctioneering firm to be held during difficult times. The negativity and criticism online and the abuse of trust by the blatant sharing of the catalogue undermines the efforts of all involved in the staging of this sale.


Please support the sale in a positive manner.

Meirion Davies and Chair of Council
