I discovered the wood store in Circus Road on Saturday, full of re-cycled furniture, wood for sale and wonderful pieces of drift wood, sculptures in their own right. It’s a social enterprise. How fantastic is that!
Apparently it started in 1998, they collect waste timber for re-use and recycling. When they began, hundreds of thousands of tonnes of wood were sent to landfill every year but now they collect tons of it and make new things with it. They also create opportunities for people to gain work experience and learn new skills at the same time.
Loved some of the driftwood, one piece was labelled as a porpoise and it looked just like one. Definitely the place to go when you need a beautifully crafted table, wood for a project or, some firewood, a picture frame, something unusual for a present, or come to that, a porpoise!
