A recycling and re-use centre was officially re-opened after being treated to a massive make over - using its own paint and materials.

Cambridgeshire Community Reuse and Recycling Network – CCORRN, is a local community organisation in Commercial Road.

The make over included brighter, more accessible displays and a new floor donated from the film set of the Peter “PAN” movie.

The scheme is run by a small team of staff and volunteers who collect, sort, test and redistribute low cost paint under contract to AmeyCespa on behalf of the county council.
