Saturday 9th December Next Swap and Mend

Published by:

Lots of people attended the last Swap and Mend, many new to the idea. Great atmosphere, great refreshments (thanks Deborah and others) a large amount ‘things’ were taken away and we were busy most of the time. 9.30- 1pm. Held at the Unitarian Meeting Hall next to the library in Framlingham.

So bring along those ‘things’ you don’t want, which are cluttering up your home/garage, and make room for your Christmas presents and have a free cuppa, cake or biscuits.

Greener Fram runs these Swap and Mends and has been since April 2014. We run entirely on donations and thank you for your support. We run these events to keep ‘things’ being thrown away and filling land fill sites.



AGM minutes posted and next Swap and Mend

The draft minutes of the AGM are posted below on the menu board under minutes of meetings.

After our AGM we had an ilustrated talk by Prof John Midwinter ‘ A sustainable lifestyle; idle dream or an urgent necessity’ which was most thought provoking and challenged the basis of our ‘conventional’ twenty-first century lifestyle.

The next Swap and Mend is on Saturday November 11th held at the Unitarian Meeting Hall in Framlingham, next to the library, from 9.30 until 1 pm. Bring things you don’t want and swap for things you do need. Or just take what you need and give a donation. We do mending as well so please do bring things along for mending. Just ask if you are not sure. Again mending is done for donations. Greener Fram is funded by donations only.

At 10.30 we will be welcoming Professor John Midwinter who will be giving a talk on ‘Sustainable Living-Idle Dream or Urgent Necessity?’ A talk worth listening to and acting on. What ideas have we to create a positive future for our local area?
