Please don't throw out anything that still works until you have advertised it on Freecycle - it's surprising just how useful your redundant items are!

TESCO BAGS OF HELP GRANT SCHEME
Tesco recently offered the Parish Council the opportunity to apply for a grant towards an outdoor community project. Funding has been made available by the 5p levy on carrier bags.
The Parish Council selected outdoor fitness equipment as their project and Tesco accepted this proposal.
Tesco customers decide the amount of the grant by voting. During May and June customers shopping in either of the Salisbury Tesco’s or the Fordingbridge
branch will receive a token. There is one token allocated per transaction of any value and it’s not necessary to purchase a carrier bag. Customers then decide which of three projects presented in store they
wish to vote for using their token. The most popular project will receive £5000, the second most preferred will receive £2000 and the least favoured will be
Coombe Bissett and Homington will receive at least £1000 towards outdoor fitness equipment but if voting
goes in our favour, it could be more.
So during May and June, lots of visits to Tesco could result in some exciting fitness equipment appearing on the recreation field.
