Can anybody help
« on: July 09, 2012, 09:34:43 PM »
I am looking for one or two stair gates for visiting grandchildren this summer.  Can anybody help with sale or loan of these please?  Don't mind  old ones - they will only be needed for a short time.

Stockport Freecycle is now called Freegle (long story, don't go there) but does the same thing.

Worth trying Tameside Freegle as well as Stockport Freegle.

I still get e-mails from Stockport 'Freecycle' every day, they don't indicate a change in name????

Freegle are a breakaway group from the original Freecycle.

They both exist, doing basically the same thing. I have recently used Freegle to find new homes for a heater, desk, dining table & chairs and a large wall unit. Much better than disposing of unwanted, but serviceable, goods. And the new owner collects so it saves a trip to the tip.

I was very grateful for the suggestions to join Freegle - but am now swamped with e-mails and can't work out how to unsubscribe! (Yes I know I am hopeless).  Please can anyone tell me how to do this?  ???

I've told my email thingy to send any Freegle emails to my spam folder and and they get deleted automatically after a period of time (if I don't do it first).
