ASCOT FREEGLE - THE SUCCESSOR TO FREECYCLE: FREE Giving, Locally, Easily
Read more: Ascot Freegle - Successor to Freecycle
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.

ASPEN, the Ascot Peace Education Network, began meeting prior to this country’s last conflict, euphemistically termed by the UK media Gulf War 2. It has been constituted as an independent voluntary organisation. It aims to build upon the tremendous concern felt by everyone about the war in Iraq. People worldwide, particularly the young, have woken up with a renewed intention to engage In peace building, by resolving conflict, and the group aims to actively promote peace and understanding through educational visits to schools, informed debates, entertaining neighbours with hospitality teas or lunches so improving relationships where we live. The group meets formally every quarter and plans to invite experienced peace activists to inspire us. Strictly speaking it is not a Christian only group although many of its members worship at All Saints Church. It is not a political organisation only humanitarian. If you wish to join you will be most welcome. Contact Mrs. A Yarwood 01344- 621167.Read more: ASPEN - Ascot Peace Education Network
