Chiddgreen Swap It Day
Chiddgreen held its fifth Swap It Day, at the Village Hall last month, and once again people took advantage of the opportunity to pass on unwanted items that still have a useful life. It was my first Swap it Day and from the start it was clear there was a hum in the hall as items large and small arrived and disappeared. Sometimes these involve a change of use with one excellent example being some demijohns: their owners had decided that their wine-making days were over but thought that someone else might like to
take up the hobby. However another local, who is a florist, declared them exactly what she had been searching for to contain the flower displays for a vintage-style wedding. Both parties were delighted with the swap.
At the end of the morning we sorted out the remaining saleable items to go to the Brownies’ Christmas Fair (yet more recycling). Sadly a couple of car boot loads did have to end up at the tip’s recycling facilities this year but it certainly demonstrated that sometimes things can have a new life in a way we hadn’t thought of, so watch out for our next event.
NB For those who were disappointed not to be able to swap larger items of furniture, why not try posting your offer in C-Bay in this magazine?
