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 the goods on offer.

Carpet Bowls This is a rare opportunity to obtain a full set of bowls equipment from a village hall which has decided to bow out after many years. It includes: 4 sets of bowls,  4 sticks, 2 diamonds, 4 blocks plus measure etc. All in excellent condition. Contact John Grey  to make an offer.

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.  The items are free to charities….but make sure that the ones you select are locally available for you to collect.  To have a look at what’s currently on offer, and to register, go to WARPIT.
