Help needed for our Swap Days

We need help with our monthly Swap Days for the rest of 2018. Without volunteers we can’t open the beloved Swap Shop.

Please indicate any of the days/times that you feel you would be available to help keep the Swap Shop open, safe and manageable for the benefit of everyone who loves it.


I  have been thinking to have the space open between 2- 7pm as core hours, giving tenants afternoon and evening options, but this could start earlier and finish later as your availability allows. (I have given time options between 12 and 8pm in the poll)

I think it would be good to have 3 or 4 people wo/manning the space during the day, each doing around 2 hours each with some overlaps.

I would also like to get a sense if there is anyone who would like to get involved in promoting reuse/upcycling by running a simple drop-in workshops in the Swap Shop during the Swap Days? Please email me or leave a comment in doodle poll. more
