London, Hackney - Give or Take IV

Hackney will be having its fourth Give or Take of the year. This one will take place on 23 September in Queensbridge Sports and Community Centre, Activity Room 1 and Café Room, 30 Holly Street, Dalston, E8 3XW

Since the start of my first event, many other councils in London have held these events, as they are been included in the waste prevention strategies. This will conclude my yearly Give or Take events, I will be writing a short report concluding its success and recommendations to carry on or offer a group to do them for us. Anyway, Give or Take days are a community waste exchange event – an opportunity for residents to give unwanted items like furniture, bikes, toys, tools, books, kitchenware and bric-a-brac, and then take something they might like or need. As well as providing residents with the opportunity to Give or Take unwanted items, the event also helps reduce the amount of waste that builds up in Hackney. It will be a fun, activity-packed community based day with a bouncy castle for kids. I will be posting photos of the goods and the actual tonnages reused by the four events held in the last year.
