Reporting on the March Swap and Mend
Next Swap and Mend Saturday 8th April,
Film ‘Tomorrow’ showing on Monday 24th April.
This month’s Swap & Mend was one of the busiest so far. Although the morning began and ended with a lot more stuff than we’ve seen of late, there was still a good turnover. Many items were bagged within moments of being donated. If you’ve never been before, you’d be amazed at what you can pick up. There’s always lots of books, toys,
electronics and kitchen equipment. This month we had at least 4 lawnmowers, a nearly new TV and a hunting horn.
Even if you don’t think you need anything, everyone loves to rummage and I challenge you to not leave empty-handed.
Jean and Rachel are our lovely sewing ladies who can mend and alter clothes so you don’t need to throw out your old favourites. Spadge and John can mend bicycles, electronics and electrical items. We also gained 2 new mending volunteers, both called Keith!
Thanks to all our volunteers who work hard to set up and clear away each month, and to all our ‘customers’ who generously donate goods and money.
Hello Everyone and thanks for your support throughout 2016.
With all those new Christmas presents you may have need to find some extra space by giving unwanted ‘items’ to the next Swap or Mend. Bring them along on Saturday January 14th.
If you have something you value that needs mending then again bring it along.
Free refreshments and LETS stall.
Thank you to all who attended our AGM in October. We have a new chair Jackie and new members of the core group. Check out ‘Information’ in left hand column (Core group for details).
The next two Swap or Mends are on Saturday 26th November and Saturday 14th January both at the Unitarian Meeting Hall in Framlingham (Next to the Library) starting at 9.30am and closing at 1pm.
Start collecting things you don’t want any more and give them away. Have a browse, find things you do want and have them for free. Bring things along for mending, again for free.
Greener Fram is funded through your donations.
Come and join in and begin taking action for a positive future.
