2022

Held in Hertford 12th-14th August. A Safari Tent was booked so people could stay in it if they wished and it could serve as a hub for the gathering. This didn't quite work to plan as there was a heatwave and chairs/food were moved around following shaded areas instead. A new dog visited with Freegle's Reading and Chitchat moderator.

2020 and 2021

Cancelled due to Corona Virus.

2019

Back to Hertfordshire in July where we benefited from a glamping tent booked by one of the party. Two new dogs visited in the company of Freegle's Havering moderator.

2018

Held in August at Clitheroe in an attempt to increase attendance from the north of the British Isles. This was only partially successful though it was a pleasure to meet three people (and one dog) who had not been before. It’s a lovely little town, and we enjoyed ourselves despite the traditional Lancashire weather.

2010

Freestock was held at Baggeridge Country Park nr Birmingham, Friday 9th to Sunday 11th July 2010. It was a mainly Freegle event, but other moderator friends were also invited and attended.

2009

The inaugural Freestock was held at Baggeridge Country Park, Gospel End, Sedley, Dudley, West Midands, DY3 4HB.

At that time, it was planned as a Freecycle event but, in the time between the planning and the event, difficulties were becoming very apparent in the UK with Freecycle. Deron was invited but didn't attend, despite having his expenses offered to be paid.
