It is with great pleasure that I can announce the formation of Tenterden Freegle, Tenterden's very own online reuse group. I applied to Freegle in late August at the suggestion of Di Greaves, who lives in Llandrindod and is part of the Transition group there. She is the sister of Sue Childs, a T3 member, and regularly pops down to Tenterden and joins in our activities here.
Anyway, last week I received an email to let me know that my application had been successful and now Tenterden Freegle is up and running, with me as the moderator. All you have to do if you have something you'd like to give away or if you'd like to request something, is head on over to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Tenterden-Freegle/ and sign up. Don't forget to read the FAQ, rules etc. Obviously there are certain things that you can't ask for or give away, like animals, illegal items and the like, nor can you 'borrow' items (unless you arrange that in private away from the site) or charge money for items. After all, this is Freegle - the word 'free' is in the name. You can also head over to our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tenterden-Freegle/183567821731733 and follow our Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/#!/TenterdenFreegl (there's no 'e' because Twitter limits the amount of characters you can use in a name).
Don't tip it or skip it! Give it away with Freegle!
