THE GREAT BROCKENHURST GARAGE CLEAROFF
Wave goodbye to your unwanted clutter and release it back into the community!
Although previously adverstised to be taking place in November 2023, we have reluctantly decided to delay our first GREAT BROCKENHURST GARAGE CLEAROFF until spring 2024 in order to hope for better weather and to give us more time to organsie and publicise. See below for details.
Saturday 27 April 2024 11:00am-3:00pm
Where? Your driveway or garage
Know the saying “One person’s rubbish is another’s treasure”?
This is your chance to rehome your unwanted clutter. The ethos of the initiative is to give away what you no longer want, but if you have items that you feel you would prefer to sell, that is OK too.
Anyone can register to take part. All you have to do is:
Have a clear-out of all that stuff you want to clear of!
Register with us that you want to take part - nearer the time a link to register will appear on this page.
On the day, set up a table of your stuff that you’d like to rehome in your driveway or garage
We will publicise the event and your location on a map that will be circulated widely around the village.
Please save the date and think about taking part!

We have been working towards five objectives to achieve the Plastic Free Communities award:
Working with the local council
Encouraging local businesses to reduce single use plastic
Signing up community groups, schools and organisations
Holding events and actions
Setting up a steering group to drive the movement
The effectiveness of the campaign is based on mobilising the whole community, working across sectors – local government, independent businesses, community groups, schools and more – to address failing systems.
Please come and join us! There is much to do!

The Plastic Free Communities Manifesto
We live in a plastic world. It’s an extraordinarily useful, versatile, cheap material. And it’s everywhere.
And it’s a growth industry, with one in every ten barrels of oil now used to create new plastic.
But together, we can make sure we kick our addiction to avoidable single-use plastic, and change the system that produces it.
We can make sure we don’t choke our streets, parks and playgrounds with it. Because if it’s on our street today, then it’s in our rivers tomorrow, and our beaches and oceans forever.
We can make sure each of us understands that we can change this, whoever we are and wherever we live.
But we can only do all of this together. That’s why we created Plastic Free Communities.
It’s a community network across the UK that’s tackling single-use plastic from the beach, all the way back to the brands and businesses who create it.
We’re on a journey to unite communities in the fight against single-use plastics, wherever we find them.
It starts here and it starts with us. And if you’re still reading this, that means you too.
So join us and let’s free where we live from single-use, one plastic bottle at a time.
