The Harberton Village Email Circulation continues to grow steadily in parallel with the website. In principle it covers the same area as the website (website coverage area), but can include interested parties beyond that area by request.

Coverage of the email circulation is about 50% of households on the Harberton side of the parish (out of a total of just over 300).
Some of the items we've managed to find new homes for over the years include a rabbit hutch, pieces of worktop, various pieces of furniture, a rubber plant, 5-bar gate, concrete reinforcing mesh... to name but a few, and located various requested items for people .
