Alexandra Cottages

In the heart of Penge, SE20

Have you changed your desk and want it to go to a good home? Do you have too many tomato seedlings and you would like to give some away?

Or are curious to see what you could get for free from one of your kind neighbours?

Then this may be the page for you!

Please contact us with:

1) Your name and address (we will only publish your first name and your street)
2) A description of the item you would like to give away (max: 50 words)
3) A picture of item (optional)
and we will put your article on this page with your e-mail address.
Any person interested will e-mail you directly.

And now the 'small print':
a) any items on this page are to be given away without expecting any payment in return
b) we do not inspect any of the items on this page: therefore the Alexandra Residents' Association cannot be held responsible for any disappointment!
c) we are not a recycling service and we do not collect any unwanted items. Please do NOT leave them outside the ARA shed or in any other communal areas!!

We have an oil tank we need to empty so we can dispose of it and there seems to be a fair amount of oil in there.
Anyone who would like it is very welcome – please bring containers to fill up [ we already have some siphoned off that you can also take].
Please call Sarah at the Estate House on 07816 836298 if you would like the oil or know anyone who would.

A firm mattress in a good, clean condition. It comes with a clean white cover (not blue as shown in picture).

The wooden frame folds so it can be used as a sofa or a bed.

Free to a good home. Contact Alex and Lovell at number 41.

Wall bracket for mounting Tv.
Wood plane (unused & still in box)

I have a number of padded bags and ring binder folders going spare if anyone interested. The padded bags are years of Amazon purchases etc and would be useful to anyone who does a lot of EBay sales.

Please contact [email protected], if interested

I have a classic brass candelabra light fitting and two matching wall lights to give away – with white frosted glass lamp shades.  Feel free to drop round if you would like a look , 40 Albert Road.

I’m clearing out my shed and have a lot of stuff I want to give away. Includes some tools, wood off cuts, wall mirror, steel box with lock (ex railway pre nationalisation I think), suitcase, roof felt off cut. Lots of small bits and pieces that would probably be skipped or off-loaded at a charity shop. Email me and you can come and have a rummage.
