shilbottle2It was suggested that we could provide a useful service in allowing member halls to exchange goods which were redundant to their needs and were in need of a good home. If anyone is interested in offering any items then please get in touch with George Courtice and I will place the articles on this page. Anyone interested in acquiring them should likewise get in touch. Please note that no liability will be accepted by NNVHC as to the quality of goods on offer.

Full size snooker tables free to good home.

full-size-antique-billiard-snooker-table-pool-table-by-burroughs-and-wattsThe sale of the old leisure centre in Ashington means that three snooker tables are looking for good homes. If any member is interested they would have to arrange transport at their own expense. Please contact asap Maureen Dixon on 01670 623880 or October 2016. NB the photo is an example only and does not depict the actual tables which we are assured are in good condition with old style carved legs.

WARPIT Waste Action Reuse Portal is a scheme, offered to charities free of charge, to encourage the reuse of redundant furniture and equipment. Northumberland County Council uses it and it is part of its policy of sustainability and reduced waste. At a time when it is busy cutting services and staff there is much available and it is all free to charities. To have a look at what’s on offer and to register go to WARPIT.
