Swishing is set to make a comeback in Ely.

The popular clothes swapping event is relaunching tonight (February 5) at Bar 62, in Newnham Street, Ely.

Check in starts at 7.30pm, with swishing getting under way at 8.30pm.

Ruth Buckley said: “Swishing is a fun and environmentally friendly way of decluttering your wardrobe of unworn items and exchanging them for beautiful new ones.”

Ms Buckley added: “All you need to do is bring around five items of beautiful yet unwanted clothes, handbags, scarves, accessories and unworn shoes. These must be in a good wearable condition, ironed and clean.

“Swap them for points and then wait for the rails to fill up with the other swishers items while you relax with a drink.”

Membership cost £5 for a year or one-off entry is available for £3.

For further details call Ms Buckley on 07941 342574.
