One More Time

HGAS Second Hand Shop

You know how it goes. Your child is going on a camp and you buy them new walking boots, waterproofs or a hoodie. Six months later, they’ve worn the item twice and now it no longer fits. You end up with a pile of hardly worn or hardly used items stuffed in the back of the wardrobe.

We have launched a One More Time second hand service at the Hut. Bring in any items in good clean condition that could be used by another child in the Group. The kind of items we are looking for are:

  • Air Scout hoodies
  • Polo shorts (Beavers and Cubs)
  • Walking boots
  • Waterproofs
  • Mess tins
  • Torches

Anything you have because your child belongs to HGAS but is no longer used, or doesn’t fit. The items will be displayed on shelving on the left as you come through the entrance of the Hut. Drop any items you wish to donate in to the Kitchen and we’ll sort out the rest.

We’re hoping to reduce the cost of Scouting for you by offering hardly worn or hardly used items for use ONE MORE TIME. There is a collecting pot on the shelves if you wish to make a donation when you take something for your child but there is no obligation.

Any lost property still in the box at the end of the year, in July, will be washed and added to the shelves when we return in September. We will do our best to return any items labelled with your child’s name.

We hope that this will provide a simple way for you to recycle and reuse your old items and support HGAS at the same time.
