Charities in the area
This is a group of about 150 mums and some dads who are all English-speaking but who come from all over the world (including Sweden) and who live here or in our nearest neighbourhood. It is a very pleasant, sociable group with lots of very informal get-togethers, including lots of meeting for coffee and regular very relaxed nights out as close to home as possible (mostly lasting just 2-3 hours because so many have tiny ones at home).
Mårten Thorslund, from Djursholm, blogs about reducing the amount of food we throw away (in Swedish):
This is a place to sell, buy or ask around if anyone very local has something you need. There are more active second-hand groups with a wider area but this one is useful if you want to stay in our area.
