    The river Trent is lovely, I know because I have walked on it for 18 years.

    Yes we have several well atleast 7 that I can think of here,, but why are they so expensive ??? I believe in giving to charity, but the local one had a book in the other week that I fancied, was 12.00 when I got it home I found out (From the flap inside that the price new was only 11.99..

    Fair enough make some money for a good cause, but DONT rip us off,, it was my fault for not looking, but actually paying more for second hand than new made my blood boil

    yep, I've found charity shops expensive over the last couple of years too...maybe its just that I am used to the prices in cheap shops but you can often get new clothes for cheaper than the charity shops these days :-(

    I volunteer at the Age Concern re use shop at the tip. It is amazing in there, you would not believe the things people would normally throw into the tip.
    It is so reasonable too and you can barter, it is encouraged. It would be brilliant if all local councils had one.
    When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown
