Next Swap or Mend Saturday 13th August

For a Swap or mend to run successfully we need the time and willingness of a team of volunteers.

The team loads and unloads previously stored items, drives the vans/cars to venue, puts up tables, puts out signs and lays out what we have, makes refreshments, unloads more items from cars as they arrive, answers questions, encourages the public to come in, does mending, runs the LETS stall, helps the public with their swaps or mends, mends some things, takes information from the public regarding items too big to bring but will then be put on the website, clears the venue, hovering, putting back furniture, loading vans and cars and taking items left over to storage.

What a team! Thank you all. Swap or Mends would not happen without you.

If anyone would like join the team and help, then please let us know through the website or at an event.

Take action towards a positive future.

Future Swap and Mends

Next Swap and Mend Saturday 18th June.

We have agreed to have Swap and Mends monthly through the Spring, Summer and early Autumn of 2016. The Swap and Mends are all on Saturdays between 9.30 and 1pm and held at the Unitarian Meeting Hall beside the Library in Framlingham.

The Dates for the future are 13th August, 10th September and 15th October.

The 15th October will be held at the FAYAPS centre next to Thomas Mills High School. This will be a mini Swap and Mend but also our AGM.

Don’t forget the Mending part of Swap and Mend events we may be able to mend things for free. Our volunteers will mend and Greener Fram will pay for any material from donations. Talk to us and we can assess whether mending is possible. We have skilled volunteers in sewing, leather work, welding, electrics and simple electronics.

Check out the LETS stand for services or items you might need and register services and items you may have. Get things done FREE of money.

Greener Fram is funded from your donations.

This pays for our hall hire, insurance, website and starting new projects.

Come and join us, taking action for a positive future.
