Residents will be able to do drop off unwanted items at an upcoming 'reuse' event at Costessey's Breckland Hall.

Textiles, furniture, books, board games, small electrical items, bikes, household paint and tools can be dropped off at the hall from 9am to 3pm on May 30.

If they pass a safety check, many of the items can be taken away between 11am and 3pm for reuse, with an optional donation to charity.

Broken or unsafe items are taken away for recycling.

Power tools, woodwork and metal work tools can be donated to the Men's Shed Project in Poringland, and all bikes collected will be sent to HMP Wayland where the prisoners will gain new skills by reconditioning them before they are sold for charity.
