WAYS TO SHARE STUFF IN GLENORCHY
Glenorchy – Ways to share stuff!
Books – Mrs Woolly’s General Store has a Book Exchange Cupboard outside the store. This is a great place to drop any books or magazines that you have read or to pick up a new read. Good turnover here so check regularly.
Food, Cleaning & Hygiene items – outside the Library / Medical building on Islay street. The Glenorchy Pantry is the place to put excess produce from your garden or extra items you buy at the supermarket. This Pantry is maintained by a small group of locals. Local businesses also contribute and our Nurse Debbie is an amazing, continuing source of supplies including cleaning products, fresh vegetables and bread.
