VoW Pop Up Surgery
Our forth Freecycle event will take place on Sunday 2 June 2024 in celebration of World Environment day.
The aim is easy. Have a clear out. Display your freebies outside of your gate or in your driveway (keeping the highway clear) for 10am until 4pm and watch people smile as they find treasure.
To register for the Freecycle event please complete this link. https://forms.gle/Wd4EsNj1q9smrzdf9
Nothing to clear out? Why not go treasure hunting yourself? A map will be published a few days before the event.
A volunteer attends the Heritage Centre the first Saturday of each month to hold a pop up recycling surgery for:-
Cables and wires
Mobile phones, tablets and kindles
Padlocks, keys and metal razors
Brita water filters
Medicine blister packs have moved to Verwood Town Council offices.
Volunteers are on duty between 9.30am and 10.30am and leave promptly.
