Swap-it! in the snow!



Thank you! Everyone who came out on the snowiest Swap-it! day ever – we had a lovely community event. There were some amazing swaps – including some lovely toys and small items of furniture, ready to inspire new owners.


On the Swap-it! outsize list, we had a complete chicken house Eglu and run (see https://www.omlet.co.uk/).

Apparently, the happy new hen-keepers will in fact be the third owners of  this ‘top-notch’ nest. Great donation, and a perfect example of why our local Swap-it! day makes sense.


We also had Max – Chiddingfold’s Mr Fix-it – but because of the snow, not too many people brought things to be mended. I am working with Transition Haslemere to start a ‘Repair Cafe’ – but we think we will need quite a lot of volunteers. Watch this space. In the meantime, Max will be happy to advise and help you keep from throwing useful stuff away.



The next Swap-it! is Saturday 29 September 2018
