Ascot Freegle - Successor to Freecycle


Ascot Freegle

Ascot Freegle is part of a new online re-use network called Freegle formed in the UK as a friendly alternative to Freecycle.

In just six days since Freegle was formed, 143 local groups like ours – 28% of former Freecycle groups and representing over 664,000 members (32% cent of the total UK Freecycle membership) – have moved to the new co-operative umbrella organisation, and many more groups are expected to follow us.

Freegle which means Free Giving, Locally, Easily, offers greater freedom for us to organise the way we work to suit local needs, without the rigid management hierarchy imposed by The Freecycle Network.

The UK has been a big player in Freecycle’s global network accounting for approximately one quarter of all re-used household items saved from landfill, and with more members per head of population than any other country.

There are already millions of people in the UK who offer unwanted household items for reuse by others, rather than dumping them. The new site Freegle is open to everyone who wants to do their bit for the planet - just visit www.iloveFreegle.org.

P.A.C.T. Parents And Children Together

PACTThere is a recognised shortage of 10,000 Foster Carers in the UK. PACT, founded in 1911, is also known as the Oxford Diocesan Council for Social Work inc. We are a registered charity working to improve life chances for children. The focus of our work is within Berkshire, including the Ascot area, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire and aims to build and strengthen families.

We are an approved Adoption and Fostering Agency. We have a history of finding safe, loving families for children in care. Here are a few facts about Fostering:
1.    Did you know you don’t have to be married to become a Foster Carer?
2.    You don’t have to have children already although you do need to have experience of caring for children.
3.    Did you know you get paid a Fostering Allowance of £335.70 a week to be a Foster Carer which is tax free and won’t affect any other benefits?
4.    Most of the children who need fostering are known as ‘hard to place’ children, they will usually be 8+ years of age.

Fostering is a hard but very rewarding job. If you think you might have what it takes to become a Permanent Foster Carer or you want to find out more then contact PACT now on 0800 731 1845 e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  

Phoenix - Self Help After Loss

Public Speaking Club

Windsor SpeakersEveryone is a bit afraid of speaking in groups or in public, some just hide it better than others! Do you think it would be a good thing if you were able to speak more confidently or improve your skills?
There’s a safe place you can achieve this and learn to become a better speaker, expressing yourself more freely and feeling in control rather than the other way round.

Windsor Speakers is a ‘non-profit’ club that meets two evenings a month where members get to practice and improve their public speaking in an organised, safe and supportive environment. It’s part of the Toastmasters International organisation that has over one million members worldwide.

We have all walks of life from housewives to business people to tradesmen to students. Ranging from accomplished speakers to absolute beginners.

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday every month at Gardeners Hall, 213 St Leonards Road, Windsor SL4 3DR. If this is something you might be interested in then pop along one evening to take a look and see what it’s all about. You’d be welcomed.
