Free: Strimmer (Missing a Part Please Read Entire Post) (Shiregreen S5) Gifted - Bosch strimmer - it has a part missing. The little metal washer through which the strimmer string feeds from the spool has been lost and Bosch do not provide replacements for this model without buying an entire new motor - maybe if you're handy you could make one or think of another solution? It works otherwise but without the washer the line just keeps retracting into the spool. Otherwise might be useful for spare parts.

Free: nursery storage basket/bag (Shiregreen S5) Gifted - From Mothercare. This is a wicker type basket bag with a fabric inner section. It has three pockets at the back. Used it to store nappies and all the assorted stuff that went with nappy changing. Been in storage and one of the fasteners has frayed but otherwise clean (the inner was washed recently) and usable. Used it as a first aid bag as well (which is why it has a red cross mark on the top). See pictures.
