A RECYLING scheme is looking to celebrate its birthday by recruiting more members.
The Royston Freecycle Group is four years old on December 22.
Chris Lee, co-founder of the group, said: "As rising prices and mounting waste cause increasing concern this Christmas, freecycling is now more important than ever.
"We currently have nearly 1900 members and reaching the 2000th member milestone by our fourth birthday would be a double celebration."
