People can give away and find new textiles, furniture, books and board games at an upcoming reuse and recycle day.

Wymondham's Kett's Park Community Centre will host the event on Wednesday, October 25 from 9am to 3pm.

Other items can include toasters, kettles, TVs, hairdryers, video recorders and other small electrical items, whether working or not.

Kay Mason Billig, environment and recycling cabinet member at South Norfolk Council, which is running the event, said: 'Our reuse and recycle events are designed to provide local communities with the opportunity to prevent materials that could be reused or recycled from going to landfill. They also serve as a great opportunity for the community to work together to make a real difference and protect our local environment.'

All items not taken away at the end of the day are given to charity.
