Hiya All,
Theres a new Yahoo Group opened on behalf of RealCycle (www.RealCycle.co.uk) for Wigan - It was only opened yesterday, so we are very quiet And have hardly any members at the moment. If your looking for something but don't have the cash, care about keeping things out of landfill, and want to offer something, please join up, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/realcyclewigan/ there.

Thank you.

RealCycle Wigan, Moderator.

I had a group on Freecycle, and then moved to Realcycle as the owners of Freecycle were outing the UK based owners. Freecycle is American owned, and they plan on putting each group on one server which they would control themselves and in doing so they would out any UK Freecycle group owners, these are people who have built their groups up from nothing, they put their time and effort into the group, only to be thanked by losing the group they run. They have started by disbanding the UK based Freecycle network. I suggest reading this item, and it may make things a little clearer.

Realcycle however is a UK based Group, and members donít have to follow any stringent rules or regulations. Basically your hands are not tied. The owner of Realcycle is a fantastic person and does not lay the law down on group owners. Realcycle is a much happier user friendly system. You can make your own mind up of Corse. But as a group owner I had to do what was best for my group members, they came first. And since becoming part of Realcycle I have not looked back once. I stand by my decision. Any way thatís my side of the story.
