'New local group opened'

Dear Members

A new group has opened for (insert group name and URL)

We ask that members use their home groups in the first instance to offer and request items.

If you would consider this new group your home group please consider joining it now!

Using one's home group has personal and collective, community and environmental benefits. It:

  • Reduces the 'competition' for items
    * Reduces 'no shows'
    * Saves money - by reducing the amount of travelling that group members need to do to give and receive items
    * Reduces abuse of the system as the community is less anonymous - members get to know each other better which leads to fewer 'bad behaviours'
    * No transport? Local groups make Freegle more accessible to everyone
    * No van/trailer? Bulky items may even be collectible on foot if they are only a few streets away
    * Reduces the number of emails per group - lots of smaller groups means we have more choice in how many posts we receive and from where we receive them.
    * Increases good neighbourliness
    * Enhances local community spirit
    * Reduces negative environmental impact - distance travelled is lessened, reducing the carbon foot print

With many thanks to everyone from the [GROUPNAME] Team.
