I couldn't resist posting the satelite image. I was rather impressed with how clear it was for an area of rural France. It's nice to know we haven't been overlooked.

Just what I was pondering. Wonder if I can use it to our advantage?

You could paint 'Terrific Holiday Cottage Here' and your phone number on the roof of your house in really big letters.

Simon,

Did you hear back about setting up a local freecycle?

I have very bizarrely just joined one in the UK near where my parents live as that's a trip I do at least 2 times a year wereas our local freecycle is at Rennes which I've visited once in 3 years so I couldn't justify going there - well it'd have to be for something pretty amazing!

It's just crossing my mind to set-up something...it's only vague thoughts at mo...

Hello group

My nearest Freecycle appears to be http://fr.groups.yahoo.com/group/CentreClermontFerrandFreecycle/ but there doesn't seem to be much activity there.

According to http://www.emmaus-france.org/ my nearest Emmaüs is @ Egletons. Has anyone here used that particular branch

Hello boxcorner. Welcome to Downsizer!!

I never did hear back anything with regards to a local freecycle although I heard there was once one in Limoges.

Emmaus is pretty good for most things. I'd give it a visit if you can get there.

Limoges doesn't seem to be listed http://fr.freecycle.org/accueil/

I phoned Emmaüs and they're only open Saturdays 09h00-12h00

Cheers

Hi,

My name is Stephane and I'am a moderator for the Freecycle Paris group.

Because Freecycle Paris yahoo! group was hard to find on the internet, we recently launched a web site with a forum and all the information needed about how Freecycle Paris works.

You can find the parisian group at this address:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/freecycleparis/ (English).
and our website :
http://paris.0dechet.com/

We hope that some other towns (Nantes and Rouen at least) will also create their website under 0dechet.com (see http://www.0dechet.com).

Have a nice day
Stéphane
ps; soon or later the website will be translated in English, at least.

Looking at the Emmaus website there is nowhere to click to search for a shop in your department. On googling Emmaus magasins there IS a search, but it takes you to where the used clothing bins are located within your postcode area.

Which is not true, because I've been to both places and they don't exist any more - or at any other supermarkets I've been to lately! It seems like I'll have to throw the bag of old clothes in the bin.
