I am looking for something. How do I ask the group?
You send an email (or post a message via the group website), to the group, with the following information :-
Subject: WANTED (your item) (your location) Text/Body: Describe the item you want .
(Do not include your phone number / exact address in your email)
If someone has the item you are looking for and no longer wants it, they will contact you by email and you can exchange contact detals / arrange to pick it up at that time.
