Marlborough Xchange is a Yahoo web group for families with children at Marlborough Primary School.
The group was set up in 2010 as a forum to allow parents and carers to help each other by sharing all the 'stuff' we need for our children.
Here are some of the things we could share/buy/sell among ourselves instead of goin out and buying brand new:
- Guides, Brownies, Rainbows, Beavers and Cubs uniforms
- Musical instruments
- Sports/dance wear
- Toys, games, DVDs, games consoles, books
- Bikes and scooters
- Baby equipment
We can also help each other by:
- Sharing lifts to parties or activites
- Sharing costumes for dressing up days at school
- Organising theatre visits for the children with group discount
It doesn't have to be about the children...
How about just sharing lifts to work? Recommending local tradespeople? Giving away spare fruit from the garden ... the list goes on!
