What you loved… (about Second Hand Saturday)

” Helped teach my great nephews environmental values and work ethics – they were rewarded with 100% of the proceeds.”

” We got rid of a lot of stuff and there were plenty of people out looking at all the garage sales ”

” The unified approach and the brilliant and colourful advertising made me feel like I was part of something special. It was great to be spreading the reuse message and promoting less waste to landfill.”

” Thank you to all the Councils for organising this great event! We sold alot, but we really enjoyed the social aspect and meeting different people. ”
