Jumble Trail

Neighbours have not only been selling and recycling goods, they have been getting to know each other as part of a community.

Residents in Albany Road, Hornchurch, took part in a Jumble Trail at the weekend, an initiative where residents set up stalls outside their homes selling anything from toys and vintage clothes, to cakes and furniture.

The event is co-ordinated online via Jumble Trail which provides visitors with a colour coded map to explore what’s on sale in your neighbourhood.

Recycle for London and Jumble Trail teamed up for a second time to bring Havering residents together for the event that encourages the community to come together while reducing waste and promoting sustainability.

The Havering Jumble Trail gives residents the opportunity to meet others in their local area to buy, sell or swap items that would otherwise go to waste, all in a street party atmosphere.

Almost 9,000 people took part in last year’s Recycle for London Jumble Trails, with nearly nine out of 10 saying they would do so again.

Founder of Jumble Trail Martina Randles said: “It feels more important now than ever to bring people across the capital together, celebrate community spirit and connect with each other.

“Jumble Trails are a great, purposeful way for people of all ages and backgrounds to have fun while helping build a more sustainable planet for future generations.

“It’s a great excuse to have a street get-together, with all sorts of residents setting up outside their home for five or so hours, armed with an assortment of goodies, chatting to neighbours and passers-by.”
