Free bike giveaway at Keynsham

Giveaway Day! MOD Building, Keynsham

Residents are being offered the chance to furnish their home or pick up a pre-used bike for free at a giveaway event in Keynsham.

A selection of second-hand furniture and adult bikes are being given away at a special event on Sunday 4 October 1pm-4m at the Old MOD building, Pixash Lane, Keynsham, BS31 1TP.

The items which include mountain bikes, beside tables, chests of drawers and pictures have been collected by staff at the council’s recycling centres as they are in a good enough condition to be reused.

It’s the first re-use event the council has held since lockdown and covid-secure measures will be in place to ensure the safety of visitors:

  • the number of people allowing into the building will be restricted to 15 at a time, to help maintain social distancing
  • a one-way system will be in operation and hand sanitising stations in place
  • masks must be work
  • children (under 18s) will not be allowed entry
  • there will be no parking on site
  • staff / volunteers cannot help with loading of items into vehicles

It is extremely important that residents do not to visit if they or anyone from their household have Covid-19 symptoms, are self-isolating or are in the shielding category.

All furniture and bikes must be taken away on the day.
