“We will unfortunately be bidding a very sad farewell to Karen Harvey, who started the Scrapstore and has worked incredibly hard and selflessly to get us to this juncture. “We wish to thank her and hope to see her build on her many successes to date. We would also like to say a big thank you to Wendy Stevenson and Adam Ruck (directors of Fenland Scrapstore) who have been there to help and guide us every step of the way.”

Karen Harvey said: “It wasn’t easy setting up a new social enterprise during a recession, and with all of the hurdles we have faced it makes me even more proud to see it succeeding. Thank you to everyone who has got involved and genuinely supported the venture.

Scrapstores exist throughout the UK and I think it’s important that we have one in Fenland too!”
