Welcome to our Community Projects

We aim to bring you a wealth of content within our community projects section in our website. We will be documenting what goes down in HQ and beyond. You will also see how we help our local community with ongoing projects that have be devised by our team to deliver a fantastic experience for everyone involved. Welcome to the circle economy.

We will share news and stories about what we encounter, some of our fantastic finds, the visitors we have coming to see what we are up to, information about our workshops and events that we have run to.

Ensure this page is bookmarked and you have it saved on your home screen to make getting here easy.

This means that we can help you, help the environment, by making your contribution to making a brighter future through embedding a circular economy
