Fenland Scrapstore to move out of permanent premises after takings stolen from member’s home
FENLAND Scrapstore has been forced to close its premises after a burglary at a member’s home which saw a month’s takings stolen.
The Scrapstore, which promotes the reuse and recycling of materials, only opened its permanent premises in Foundry Way, March, in July
But a burglary at a member’s house before Christmas has resulted in the group being forced to move out.
Liam Thompson, administration assistant at Atelier East, said: “Unfortunately a team member of Fenland Scrapstore has suffered a burglary which included the months takings ready to be banked. The money was to cover our rent for our premises in March, which means we will no longer be able to run through a premises.
“This has devastated us as we are trying our very hardest to keep bringing the community brilliant materials for all types of projects and occasions.

“We will never give in though. We will be creating community events and visiting places around Cambridgeshire each month in the New Year.”
