Free: Flip board & chalkboard/easel (Torrance G64) - Here I have two stands - a chalk board (which has doubled as an artist's easel) & another stand that would also work for an artist, or perhaps, say, attaching a dartboard or target to. We used to use them for family/kids games but they're now surplus to requirements. Approx five feet high. The flip board has now been taken...

Free: Cushion pads (Torrance G64) Withdrawn - A couple of square cushion pads, 44 x 43 x 10 (&13) cm. They probably pre-date the era of fire safety labels, so I'd assume they're not especially fire-retardant. They are nice and comfy though...

Free: Chainsaw (Torrance G64) Gifted - Electric chainsaw, quite old but works fine. 14'' blade, though it's not really powerful enough to cut anything remotely that size! It has an old adaptor on the flex, so you'd want to cut that off and put on a new flex & plug.

Free: Internal doors (Torrance G64) Gifted - 4 internal doors (3 teak? and one unused B&Q composite one) The three wooden ones are 76cmx196-8cm; two of them have glass as shown The B&Q one is 828x2040mm and is still in its packaging - but because of its construction it can't be trimmed a great deal, which means I can't use it. I might be able to deliver if interested, but these really need to go very soon as I need the space they are taking up.
