Up-cycle your furniture for free at a paint party in Chingford
An event is set to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and get visitors transforming old furniture.
The Forest Recycling Project (FRP) holds regular ‘Give or Take’ days when people can bring along unwanted items others can take them away for free.
It is estimated the events prevent up to two tonnes of usable items being dumped in landfill sites.
Visitors can also take along an item of furniture and learn how to make it as good as new.
Household paint and compost will also be available for free.
Other workshops on the day include bike-powered painting and face and mural painting.
This free community event on Saturday will run between 11am and 3pm at the Pimp Hall Nature Reserve, which is behind the Kings Road Recycling Centre at 48 Kings Road in Chingford.
