Cornwall Scrap Store receives investment
for long-term sustainability
Nearly £30,000 has been invested in the Cornwall Scrap
Store, which is based at Goonamarris near St Austell. The
investment has come from the Objective One Rural Key Fund
and Restormel Borough Council and was secured with the assistance
of Restormel Regeneration Partnership (RRP).
Cornwall Scrap Store re-uses surplus materials and products
donated by industry and passes them on to schools, clubs and
other community groups mainly for arts and educational uses.
The investment will enable the recruitment of a new post
at the Cornwall Scrap Store focusing purely on marketing and
business development. The aim of this investment is to make
this locally valued resource sustainable in the future. The
project will also examine in detail the operations of the
Scrap Store and how it can best deliver its services to members,
including location of depots and how this can be achieved.
Gary King said "We are elated that we have received
investment to progress this work. The recruitment of a person
to assist in the marketing and development of the charity
will enhance the facilities we already provide."
The post holder will also work with Restormel Regeneration
Partnership and other similar organisations in order to examine
how grant-aiding trusts and local authorities may want to
'buy-in' to the future development and success of Cornwall
Christine Bainbridge, Programme Manager of Restormel Regeneration
Partnership said: "We are really pleased to secure the
investment for the Scrap Store and look forward to working
