My local Freecycle group has just changed its name and disassociated itself from the American chain. It's now part of the Freegle group which was set up by disaffected former Freecycle mods in the UK.

I had no idea that politics ran so wild in Green circles!

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

That's interesting Paul, as I mentioned a short while ago I was using the Freecycle site and recently it was taking ages to get stuff posted and now they are crying out for moderators, this explains why

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Our local freecycle group changed it's name to the Burnley & Pendle "Realcycle" group... :confused

I still refer to it as Freecycle though, cos that's what I signed up with, they just changed the name... :p
