It is part of the Freegle movement, set up in 2009 to enable folk to give things away.Berwick is now the very latest in a UK network of over 400 local groups and over two million members.

All Freegle groups are free to join, run by local volunteers and provide an internet site where members can list ‘Offers ’ of, and/or ‘Wanteds’ for, items now surplus to their owners’ requirements. You decide who the lucky person is, and you arrange a convenient time for collection.

Volunteer Susan Bell said: “We’re the latest in a nationwide network of Freegle groups, whose aim is to keep ’stuff’ out of landfill by giving it away free. Doing so is not only environmentally friendly, but it also enables folk to help one another and keeps everyone’s council tax down.”
