High Street Swap Shop
A group of local Thanet residents invites you to an afternoon Swap Shop on Saturday 8th December at 60 High Street in Margate.
Thanet in Transition, who wants a better future for us all, together with the Streets Ahead Margate hub welcomes all of you with anything to swap - and will even serve up free hot drinks.
Open from 2pm-4pm they hope that toys, clothes and anything from the house and garden will be brought along and swapped in this run-up to Christmas.
"We all have to tighten our belts right now" says Thanet in Transition member Mariette Castellino "And this is a good chance to trade unwanted things for something more useful".
"All we ask is that what you bring is clean and usable" added fellow member Sue Kennedy. "And please bring your own shopping bags".
Rox Tesla, from Streets Ahead Margate said “We’re delighted to support organizations such as Transition in Thanet with our free hub space.”
Thanet in Transition is planning more events that enable people to come together to share and learn to live more sustainably. Instead of buying more, they encourage people to recycle and reduce their carbon footprint while having fun.
Thanet in Transition is part of a global Transition Movement that creates community-led activities to help achieve a 'soft-landing' to a real and sustainable future.
