A recycling and re-use centre is being officially re-opened after giving itself a massive make over - using its own paint and materials!

The community base has a total new look centre which includes a freshen up on the outside of the building with a Banksy style mural painted by Cromwell Community College students.

Cambridgeshire Community Reuse and Recycling Network – CCORRN, a local community organisation based in March, is reopening at 10am on Saturday September 9 after the team of staff and volunteers gave the customer area what they say was a much needed makeover.

The centre at Unit 3 Commercial Road will have cakes, refreshments and special offers including free membership or renewal on the day.

Inside visitors will be able to enjoy brighter, more accessible displays, thanks to the efforts of volunteers, even the floor has been treated to a donation from the film set of the Peter “PAN” movie.

Also on site is the creative wonderland Bits and Bobs Scrapstore which diverts clean reusable scrap waste materials from businesses and individuals for members to use creatively in arts, crafts and play activities.
