Swap and Mend with Special Guests!

Published by:

We are back to full swapping power! Here to help with your pre Christmas clear out just in time. Providing a place to acquire those truly environmentally friendly Christmas presents- no packaging, no consumerism, no waste! 

This weeks special guests include Abigail Robinson from Children’s Charity ‘Woodcraft Folk’. They are hoping to set up a local group so come by and find out more or email  for more info

We are joined again by the wonderful Fram Fix. Find them in their fixing tent and see if they can help bring your broken item back to life! You can also speak to them about Volunteering. The Fram Fix team are still desperately looking for a permanent home, can you help?
