Children outgrown their clothes or want to trade for some new items for your growing babies and toddlers?

Have some maternity wear you no longer need?

Swap instead of shop and reduce textile waste while avoiding fast fashion!

Invite your friends and family so there are plenty of sizes and styles for everyone to choose from for their children!

What items can I bring? 

All babies, toddlers and children's clothing and accessories in a presentable and wearable/usable condition is welcome at the swap.

Maternity wear is also very welcome.

We encourage quality clothing that is clean and undamaged, with a longer potential lifespan.

The ideal items are those your children loved but are no longer favourites or fit anymore.

Bring clothes on hangers and in size bundles ready to place onto racks or into infant clothing tubs.

If you have adult items, come to the Autumn swap on 23 February 2020.

How does it work?

1. Clean out your children's wardrobe, drawers and storage.

2. Bring clothing, toys, shoes and items.

3. Bring your items on hangers and place them on the racks according to their sizes and then browse the racks and take the items you'd like. You can come and go at any time you like between 12.00 pm and 2.00 pm on the day.

All items that have not been swapped will be donated to local charities by the Town.


Registration is essential if you'd like to get involved.
