Borderers take up declutter site Freegle

THE Borders branch of Freegle - the site for giving things away free - has gained 385 members within a year.

Set up last February by a Westruther volunteer after he noticed there was no Borders site, the branch covers the central Borders up to Peebles.

People post their unwanted items and others post what they are seeking, for example one local is looking for broken mobile phones to practice mending them.
