Free: Polystyrene Packing Noodles (Whitley SN12) Gifted 49d - A box of those packing noodles that look like white cheesy Whotsits. Very light, very protective.
Free: Olympus 850 SW camera (Whitley SN12) Gifted 71d - Doesn’t work but it seems wrong to bin it. Spares/ repair
Free: Bunk bed (Whitley SN12) Gifted 79d - In very good condition. Was offered to charity but refused because one plastic stopper is missing. Sorry but no photo of it assembled as I’d dismantled it for the charity.
Free: USB Floppy disc drive (Whitley SN12) Gifted 87d - This is a long shot but is this of any use to anyone? It worked last time I used it but have long since got rid of the floppy discs.
Free: 3-wheel scooter (Whitley SN12) Gifted 102d - Pretty tatty but still works. If there are no takers, it’s off to the tip.
Free: Workzone Multi-tool (Whitley SN12) Gifted 110d - I’ve replaced this with a mains powered one. The spindle seems a little loose so may be only suitable for spares. Charger is included but no accessories as I need them for the replacement.
Free: Children's bike (Whitley SN12) Gifted 120d - See photo for details. The stabiliser wheels need a couple of small parts to keep them in position (see photo) but fine for a child that doesn't need stabilisers.

Free: Thigh waders (Whitley SN12) Expired 137d - Size 11, I think. They’ve been in my attic a while so I can’t guarantee that they’re totally waterproof.

Free: Corded curtain track and Roman blind track (Whitley SN12) Expired 158d - Both working fine but redecoration and replacement windows means they are surplus to requirement.

Request: Bunk bed (Whitley SN12) Expired 1y - We’re taking in a Ukrainian family and a bunk bed would make better use of the space available. Condition not important as long as it’s sound.

Condition is not important as long as the bottom few inches are intact. Clear glass preferred but not essential. Standard sized wine bottles are not so useful.
