Next Swap or Mend 6th February

Published by:

Thank you for all who supported and came along today. A very successful Swap or Mend. A cold and wet day but our regulars came along and many new people as well.

After today (we have more volunteers) we can now offer mending needing stitching, leather work, simple electrics, welding, any metal, wood or stone products and possibly electronic goods. Not everything can be mended but many items can. Before throwing an item away, bring it to Swap or Mend we may be able to mend it.

Lets keep things out of landfill!              P1000413

We are having a break over Christmas and New Year our next Swap or Mend is on Saturday 6th February. 9.30 to 1 pm. Unitarian Meeting House (next to library ) in Framlingham. Collect together those items you don’t want and bring them along to swap.
