28 Mar 2017: Give & Take at Redbridge Institute

Give and Take Days
With Amey & Redbridge Council

A Give and Take day is a waste exchange or swap event; a chance to get rid of things you don’t need any more and pick up something you do need.
ALL FOR FREE!

Our very first Give and Take event in the Central library was a great success and inspired us to work in a partnership to offer our residents a regular venue.

Our next tranche of Give and Take days will be held on the following dates:

Tuesday 28th March 2017: 11:30am - 3:00pm
Redbridge Institute, Gaysham Avenue, Ilford, Essex, IG2 6TD
Donations will be accepted until 2 pm.

Please bring along books, CDs, DVDs, sportswear, bric-a-brac, clean clothes, kitchenware, homeware, toys and games. Unfortunately we are unable to accept bulky items (such as furniture), infant car seats or electrical items. For these items see TCL Reuse.

Since October 2014 ‘Give and Take – Community Swap Shop’ events organised by Amey in partnership with the Redbridge Recycling Team has rehomed 2200kgs of items.

Redbridge residents have had the chance to donate, swap or just take something no longer wanted by another member of our community – all for free.

The events are great fun, save residents money and make local sense out of reducing waste.

If you would like to organize a ‘give and take’ event amongst friends, or in a community group, all you really need to start with is a table or two and a date! You can grow the event as you go along if you find you’d like to. You will find lots of tips on how to hold your own event here, click.

Transition Leytonstone introduces permaculture to Leytonstone: this design framework looks to ecosystems for inspiration, and helps guide all types of human systems toward greater ecological integration and sustainability. The word is a combination of ‘permanent’ and ‘agriculture’. The permaculture movement teaches how we might make the inevitable impact of our footprint a healing force. By partnering with ecology and biology we can build a much more secure society that future generations will be proud to take on.

The film will be followed by a Q & A with our special guest, director, Costas Boutsikaris. Costas is currently in the UK making a new crowdfunded film series called Woodlanders, documenting forest culture. The Woodlanders fundraising page is here.

2 – 4pm, Tuesday 21 March 2017
Fifth floor, Redbridge CVS, Forest House, 16-20 Clements Rd, Ilford IG1 1BA

The objective of this meeting is to plan our local transport access strategy and respond to Redbridge council’s budget.
During this meeting you will be able to share any transport access issues you may encounter in Redbridge.

In 2015 the Redbridge Transport action group successfully fought for, and saved the Redbridge mobility scheme. Now we plan to build on this success, and fight to protect accessible transport services from a fresh round of cuts.

The first Transport Action Group meeting of 2017 has two halves:
  • 2.00pm: Building on our previous success: Plans for 2017. What speakers would you like to hear from? What actions would you like to take? What transport issues are most important to you?
  • 2:45pm: Break
  • 3.00pm: Redbridge Council budget: What it does it mean for Transport Accessibility and How should we approach it?
  • 4.00pm: Meeting ends
Please let me know if you are coming by calling Transport for All. Redbridge CVS is an accessible venue, but should you have specific requirements, for example, a speech–to–text or a signer, please contact me by March 11th.
