Eco-friendly group hosts swap shop

GREAT Cornard is the location for a swap shop next month to encourage people to re-use and recycle their no-longer-needed possessions.

Transition Sudbury is running the event as part of its goal of working towards a sustainable future.

On Saturday, September 10, people can go along to the Stevenson Centre, in Stevenson Approach, and take along any unwanted items, such as books, toys, crockery, music or garden equipment. They can take away any items that catch their eye for free.

Transition Sudbury has been set up by the Sudbury Market Town Partnership as a result of a £5,000 grant by the Suffolk Foundation.

Partnership project manager Jane Hatton said: “The aim is to reuse and recycle and to get the community working together to reduce the amount going to landfill.

“You don’t need to bring anything or take anything away and it’s all for free. Anything is welcome as long as it’s not toxic, dangerous or broken and any leftovers will be divided between the local charity shops.”

Anyone interested in getting involved in the group’s next meeting on September 14 can contact Jane Hatton at
