New Covid19 Lockdown - 5 January

Following the government’s recent decision (see below) to impose a further complete lockdown on England the moderators of the Poole Freecycle group, like virtually every other Freecycle group in the country, have reluctantly decided that we have to close down all Poole Freecycle activity until the government relax the current situation.

This means that any pending Wanted or Offer posts will now not appear on the website. Also, as the lockdown is predicted to last until March, all existing posts will immediately be cleared from the site. Items currently on the website can be re-posted when the lockdown ends and posts or requests may be made again when normal service is resumed.

We are very sorry to have to take this step and apologise for the inconvenience this will cause, but we feel that to leave the site open could encourage people to break the law and would only risk making a bad situation worse.

Very best wishes – stay safe

For information, the government's latest information can be found here -

The essential points are that we must all: Stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives. You should follow this guidance immediately. The law will be updated to reflect these new rules. You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may only leave the home to: • shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person • go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
