It has been suggested that there may be demand for local classified adverts and a ‘swap-shop’ page on this website. Such pages require a lot of effort to look after. Therefore we suggest that anyone wanting to give, receive, swell or buy pre-used items investigate some of the websites below.

If you know of other internet resources similar to the above which are not listed on this page, them please let us know about them via this form.

Freegle:  Don’t throw it away – give it away!

Started in the hope of reducing landfill, Freegle is now a national network of local people who have usable items which they no longer need. Items are advertised to other local people via a Yahoo! Groups mailing list, the most important conditions are that no charge is made and that the receiver collects.

North Shropshire Freegle covers Market Drayton, Whitchurch, Wem and surrounding areas, and you can find out more here. There are other groups in Shrewsbury and Telford with details available on the main Freegle website.
