How did you manage to lose a table?

Is it just me that is totally bemused by this "free cycling" scheme????

Is it some EU directive that states that those who leave small tables at hotels are entitled to a free replacement from the Free Cycle Centre in Brussels????

Free cycle or real cycle whatever its called these days, is pretty useful IMHO. We've given away large bits of furniture in decent condition nad acquired other bits in return - desk for the kids for their studies, a piano are ones which spring to mind.

Can't you put out a 'Reward - Lost Table' poster if it ias sentimental value? Maybe post a pic of the table to help? Describe its distinguishing features? What name does it answer to etc....

I'm sure someone will spot it and return it to its rightful home.

Yeah, its run by a bunch of tree hugging, bearded sandal wearing hippies. And that's just the women....

It is encouraging peopel to recycle rather than to land fill, so yes, it will encourage people NOT to ship goods all of the shop!
