Our friends at the Wiltshire Scrapstore invited us to the official opening of their new community room by The Duchess of Cornwall this week.
The Wiltshire Scrapstore is a thriving children’s and community charity based in Lacock, near Chippenham. Their aim is to promote learning through creativity, by making resources available to the community at an affordable cost.
Visitors to the Scrapstore will find an Aladdin’s cave of unusual materials as they take ‘scrap’ material donated by local businesses and find a creative use for it! They also run craft workshops to encourage all ages to explore their creative side. The new community room will help them to expand the range of activities they offer and make them even more accessible.
The Consortium supplies the Scrapstore with various art and craft items and was delighted to be invited to the official opening. Marketing and Merchandising Director, John Kershaw said “It was a great honour to be invited to this event and see the new facilities receiving the royal seal of approval! It’s a testament to the Scrapstore’s success in providing a valuable service to the community and we look forward to continuing to work with them.”
