Distance - How far away is acceptable
A member does not have to live anywhere near a particular Freegle community in order to be a member of that community.
Some communities have a local policy, e.g. you can only join if you live there or in a neighbouring area - this can mean that the community is more orientated around a local community and that gifted goods don’t travel as far. Others do not.
If you are considering implementing a policy like this, you may wish to consult your members. It’s also a good idea to be willing to make occasional exceptions, as there are lots of reasons why people join communities away from where they live, for example on behalf of relatives who do not have computer access, or they are clearing the house of a deceased relative or friend - also people often work or study in a different place from the one they live.
