Story by Yanina Koszalinski

Gillian, Alex and I can’t wait to open the new scrapstore. Our mission is to get reusable waste materials used for creative play, art and craft activities while reducing unnecessary waste. Anyone working with children or adults (or parents/carers) can join and obtain materials for a small donation.

We have backgrounds in playwork and set up Scrap Dragon after previous experience of children’s scrapstores and getting the recycling bug!

Gillian said

“We’ve had loads of fun and made many friends. Businesses have provided lots of other interesting stuff – come along and see for yourself.”

We’ll be open Saturdays 10am to 1pm during August at 204 Verdon Street, before our official launch in September when we’ll be extending opening times and developing new services, including workshops and hireable themed craft packs.
