Warehouse move part 2

DRS IS MOVING!!! Time to get the van packed up and everything moved over to our new warehouse at the old telegraph building. 

This Thursday we will continue packing, sort through, organise and pack all the car boot sale items and we will be moving some items to the new warehouse. 

Because the site of the old warehouse is derelict apart from us being there, the council have asked us to keep the barrier closed at all times. However, the barrier won't be locked, so if it's up when you arrive, just jump out of the car and move it out the way. Someone should be at the old warehouse all day, so if you have donations to drop off, we will still be there accepting them. 

There will be tea, coffee, snacks and a fun and friendly atmosophere. 

Hope to see you there :)

Warehouse sort followed by lunch

Just another day down at the DRS warehouse on chequers rd. Except, it's our last day with the wonderful Moyra as she's off to New Zealand for 4 months. So, let's make it a good one. It would be great to have regulars, occasionals and new faces come along and make it a fun and friendly day. Afterwards we'll head over to the Smithfield's pub for a farewell lunch. Hopefully we'll be able to pop in and see our new warehouse too! 

If you have any donations, we'll be there all morning so bring them down. 

Tea, coffee, snacks, etc as always
