Free: Box of packing peanuts/chips (Glenrothes KY7) Gifted 2d - box measures 30x46x9cms. The polystyrene peanuts have only been used once to transport a potted plant (Aloe Vera) and that has arrived fully intact so they have done their job well.
Free: Circuit board from Computer Hard drive (Glenrothes KY7) Withdrawn 9d - I know nothing about this other than that it came from the back of a hard drive when that was removed and destroyed. The dive ran Win95 when first installed and worked perfectly on XP when finally switched off. May be of use to someone.
Request: bring life to back to Hebrides Freegle (Uibhist a Deas HS8) 10d - Outer Hebrides Freegle needs local volunteers. We need people to tell their friends and to offer and ask for stuff they need to help revive our Freegle community. Can you help spread the word about Freegle in your area by word of mouth and on social media – we have Facebook and Twitter ? Or maybe you could put up some posters and distribute leaflets?

Free: Gents cycling jacket (Glenrothes KY7) Gifted 23d - Size XL with half zip and large pocket in front. *NB* there are a couple of small holes in the back at about the neck line so if used when in heavy rain it does leak where the water runs off the hood if it is up, not a lot but enough to get your collar damp.
Free: Little Singing Alfie (broken) (Glenrothes KY7) Expired 27d - Sadly Alfie has lost his voice and been discarded in the street. He is from vtech and although I tried new batteries there is no sound. Alfie is about 18cm high and has a hook to hang on a pram ot cot.

Request: run the Oban Freegle Group (Glenrothes KY7) Expired 182d - The Oban and Lorn group is looking for local volunteers to help with the daily running of the group. You need to be computer literate and to be able to spare a few minutes, two or three times a day to clear waiting messages and deal with member queries. There is no pay for doing this but it is very rewarding, knowing we are helping to leave the planet in a better state for our children by keeping useable items out of landfill, as well as helping people to obtain items they could otherwise not afford to buy. If you feel that this might be you, please press the contact volunteers button on the group page on our website for an informal chat. Or reply to this message. Thanks very much. Oban and Lorn Freegle Free: Party plates, bowls and cutlery (Glenrothes KY7) Expired 225d - I have used up about 5 of the plates and some of the cutlery but what remains is untouched by hand or food, the bowls are still wrapped in the original packaging.

Cut to size using your existing filter as a template and the colour changes gradually as the filter works until the white squares turn red then it needs changing.
Free: Magnets (Glenrothes KY7) Expired 282d - 12 magnets each 38x7x4mm. I removed them from one of those door net curtains to keep flies out, the net is all torn by the dog and repaired as much as I could so time for a new one but I thought someone might make use of the magnets, possibly to make your own personal fridge magnets. I can deliver within the Glenrothes area.

My dog has proven multiple times that 1. he has no interest in bringing a ball back and 2. that he has no intention of coming back himself so he stays on the lead and this launcher will go to a more deserving dog. Lead is for small dogs up to 20kg and never been used.

Free: Jerusalem Artichoke (Glenrothes KY7) Gifted 310d - The corms are good for eating (recipie online) and the non flowering plant grows to over 2m high and is good for screening but does need tying up in exposed areas as it is prone to being top heavy and falling over. I will be lifting them in the next couple of weeks once the foliage starts to die back.
Free: Childs cuddly toy (Glenrothes KY7) Expired 326d - Brand name is Addo, 'Be My Baby' and label says suitable from birth, it sits about 25cm high. It has been through a wash cycle. The tassle at the top could do with a couple of extra stitches but otherwise sound and safe to go to a new home.
