We all know the dismay we feel when presented with a gift we know will never be used but that has to be accepted graciously with a smile. Loft, garage, charity shop?
This month, as well as the usual offer of coffee, cakes and Transition Belper stalls, the Green Exchange will feature an unwanted gift swap.
Visitors are asked to bring along their unwanted Christmas gifts with the aim of both saving the environment and finding something new.
Transition Belper said: “What you don’t want could be treasure to someone else and anything left over will go to a charity shop down the road.”
Running the Café and providing food this month will be the Crich Lane Gardeners who are raising funds for improvements to the site. The team have worked tirelessly over the past several years to improve the Crich lane gardens (Festival gardens) and will be on hand to discuss what they have done and their ideas for the future.
Crich lane volunteer Tom Grimwood Taylor will also be available to offer tech advice on Apple/Mac/iPhone issues in exchange for a small donation – again towards Crich Lane Festival Gardens.
Transition Belper’s November Green Exchange – Saturday 27th January at No. 28, Market Place 10.00am – 1.00 pm.
