A lawnmower, a workbench and two pushbikes were among items put to good use at Whitby Civic Society’s fourth Give or Take Event.

Over 150 people turned up to West Cliff School to see what they could find to take away for free.

It is the fourth time the Society has run such an event and it is hoped that another will be held in March.

There was also a competition for the best Christmas decoration made from waste materials and it was won by Katie Brighton in the under eight class with a green Christmas pig and by Zack Nelson in the over eights with a bell made from a yoghurt pot and smartie lids.
