** GIVE & TAKE IS BACK FOR 2020 **
If you're unfamiliar with the concept, the bi-annual Give & Take Days are a popular free recycling event which is all too relevant in modern times and fantastic for the local community.
Simply bring along and GIVE anything you no longer want the night before, then come along during the event and TAKE what you want! The organisers only ask for voluntary donations for big items and every penny raised goes to charity.
This first 2020 event runs on Saturday 22nd February 2020 from 9:00am-11:00am, with drop off the night before 7:00pm-9:00pm (or first thing from 8:30am). Next date, Saturday 26th September 2020.
Refreshments are available and there will be a tombola as well.
