Saturday 10th February – Next Swap and Mend

Published by:

Swap and Mends usually happen monthly. At each event you bring something you don’t want to swap, or bring something that has broken and we will see if we can mend it, or just come along and take what you like for a no pressure donation. We serve Fairtrade tea, coffee and sometimes cakes all for free. Our mending is for free as volunteers take on the mending, Greener Fram pays for the parts and you can give a donation.

Greener Fram also runs the community garden, a LET scheme, Fairshare food stall and we also organize a bulk buy from SUMA foods. To find out more come along on the 10th February to the Unitarian Meeting Hall next to the library in Framlingham.

Greener Fram is funded entirely by your donations. If you have ideas that fit with our objectives then share them with us and those ideas maybe our next project.

Another successful Swap and Mend December 2017

Published by:

Even with the cold weather lots of people turned out either to bring ‘things’ in or to browse and take ‘things’ away.

Thanks for all who came along and to the helpers without whom it wouldn’t happen. Swap and Mends are run to keep ‘things’ out of landfill and re-home unwanted ‘things’.  We can often feel that our small actions for a positive future are minuscule, but I think a quote from  E.F.Schumacher (author of the book ‘Small is beautiful’) says it all really.

‘We must do what we conceive to be the right thing and not bother our heads or burden our souls with whether we’re going to be successful, because if we don’t do the right thing, we’ll just be doing the wrong thing and we’ll just be part of the disease and not part of the cure.’

A thought that might encourage us. Next Swap and Mend, Saturday 13th January 2018.
