Need a cheap old washing machine that someone could deliver

Kim from Eyrewell Forest

Anyone got an old cheap washing machine, suitable to use outdoors.

I am in desperate need of a second hand washing machine, to wash soiled rags, towels etc which are used as bedding for my ducks and rescued ducks and ducklings. I am having to handwash it at the moment and it takes hours.

I am in desperate need of a second hand washing machine, to wash soiled rags, towels etc which are used as bedding for my ducks and rescued ducks and ducklings. I am having to handwash it at the moment and it takes hours.

It will be outside, so might suit someone who has one that isnt good enough to sell for indoor use (ie leaks, noisy, etc). Brand and condition irrelevant, as long as it still works (agitates and spins) or an older tub with one of those wringer thingys.

Must be cheap. As I unfortunately dont have access to a trailer, I would need someone to drop it off here (can reimburse fuel)

Please text 02040641485 if you can help
Thanks

Howdy neighbours!


I am looking for any unwanted second hand building materials to build extra housing for my rescued ducks, plus as its duckling season and my weekly feed is now well over 100kg, any donations of feed, and old linen such as towels.

The following sorts of things would be useful if you have any you don't want.


* Kitchen lino, large pieces (room size) any colour or style, to use as flooring for ducks in wheelchairs.
* Clamshell plastic paddling pools and similar (URGENT)
* Screws especially self tapping square or phillips type 32mm or longer used is fine as long as they can be reused.
* Wire fencing, wire netting, chicken wire, sheep/cattle fencing incl offcuts
* Warratahs etc
* Plywood, old doors or old windows in wooden frames
* Metal brackets, braces supports, flat/straight or corner etc to join or brace wooden sections
* Planks of wood
* Polythene clear plastic, including the thickish clear plastic that you often find as part of the packaging on new furniture, beds, etc
* Waratahs all lengths
* Or unwanted artificial grass/Astro turf, or grass green carpet!
* Linen, particularly towels, quilts, blankets, etc (URGENT)
* Donations of feed (chicken feed, grains, cat or dog food) to help feed the 100 extra ducklings here at the moment (URGENT)
* Also if anyone has an old automatic washing machine they no longer need, it would be outdoors used to wash towels and other linen used for ducklings, so wouldn't matter if it had like small leaks etc as long as all functions (wash, spin, drain water) worked. (URGENT)(
* And if anyone has any duck weed in their streams or pond, or reeds/Bullrushes or flaxes /grasses they don't want, to plant round my duck pond.


If you can help with any of the above please text 020 406 41485

A Canterbury man is thrilled to be back with the Defence Force nearly 30 years after a freak accident robbed him of his planned career – and the use of his limbs.

Oxford's Grant Philip was just 18 when he fell awkwardly from a diving pontoon at a beach on a summer evening.

Thirty years later, he's returned to the Defence Force by joining its Invictus Games team, competing in archery this week.

"Being back in the Defence Force regime and family has been really good ... Everybody is equal and everybody cheers everyone else on. It's a really good environment to be in," he says.
