One man’s rubbish is another man’s gold is what the people of Greenwich proved as they traded items that would otherwise go to waste.

Around 1,000 people attended the Jumble Trail in Blackheath on August 20 with 65 different stalls of people trading their unwanted items.

The Greenwich Jumble Trail, set up by Recycle for London, was set up to encourage the community to come together whilst reducing waste and promoting sustainability.

Martina Randles, founder of Jumble Trail, 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.”
