Members are kindly asked to Remember:-

  • Please remember that we only have two paid members of staff, the other people you see in the scrapstore are volunteers. They give up their time for free so the scrapstore can stay open. Please be polite to them and remember, they may not be able to answer all of your queries.
  • To do their best to keep the materials tidy, leaving materials on the floor can create a hazard and generates more work for the volunteers who run the Scrapstore.
  • To not take more materials than required and return any unwanted materials for the benefit of other members.
  • That availability of materials varies considerably in accordance with supply and demand, so visits to the Scrapstore should be made with an open mind.
