Children’s Clothes Swap

It’s simple; take an item, leave an item. You don’t have to leave an item immediately to take one, simply drop off something when your little one has outgrown it in the future. Come together as a community to share clothes and the memories they hold, support each other to save money by not buying brand new whilst being more sustainable.

Available at all Open Play and Family Workshop sessions.
