Are all the pieces intact such as for puzzles or tools or camping gear? Is the item in working order?  Trestles have been placed in the various areas of the basement apart from the clothes racks (I ran out of time to position them) so from now on any items you bring PLEASE take them to the relevant area.  Please            understand that we absolutely do not want junk or any electrical equipment as it’s unreasonable for the church to have to pay to dump it!  Please note we need people to sort linen/drapes etc, homewares, Bric a brac, kitchen items, books, puzzles and clothing, garden and workshop tools, furniture, Kids stuff.  I’m away until 23 April looking after grandchildren and expect to spend that week working in the Basement.
