Cashless exchange event - find good homes for your unwanted items, and perhaps pick up something you do want!

For details of Swap Shop events see Festivals, Fairs and Markets listings.
At a Swap Shop in Wheatley on Saturday 12th January, Frances Buckel, Community Action Group (CAG) project officer spoke to a punter who had never been to a swap shop before. He said, “This is great; I am new to the area and am stocking up my flat. I’ve found a set of cutlery, pots, plates, mugs and even a kettle for my gas stove. I’m delighted.”

Swap shops were also held in Wallingford and Bullingdon (Headington) on that morning. Just over a 1000 people in total attended, taking things away which weighed in the region of 2 ½ tonnes - things which might otherwise have ended up in landfill! What can we achieve on 8th March with so many events taking place?
