Shelford Swish

Feel you have nothing to wear despite a wardrobe stuffed with clothes? Want to exchange clothes that don’t fit for ones that do? Keen not to add to the fast fashion problem and your global footprint? If the answer is yes, then Shelford’s Swish, to be held at Great Shelford Free Church (opposite the coop) is for you. They are taking women’s, men’s and children’s clothes, shoes and accessories. Bring along and take as much as you like. Items must be clean and in good condition. Whilst the team are sorting clothes you can enjoy homemade cake at Cara Coffee next door and catch up on other environmental activities.

At the Free Church they are delighted to be teaming up with 2G3S (Green Groups in the Shelfords, Stapleford and Sawston)and Romsey Mill to organise this event, which will run concurrently with the Repair Cafe also at the Free Church.


Please drop off your clothes on Saturday February 29th at 2:00 for a Swish that will start at 2:30 and end at 3:30 pm. Entry is free but donations to Romsey Mill are very welcome. If you have queries, please email: administrator@shelfordfreechurch.org.uk
