'New local Freegel Community opened'

Dear Members

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

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

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

Using one's home community 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 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 communities 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 community - lots of smaller communities 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.
