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 Scrap Store.

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 with the new person to help the Scrap Store achieve its full potential."


Editor's notes:

Restormel Regeneration Partnership

Restormel Regeneration Partnership was established in 2000, with the object of making Restormel '… a more prosperous and lively area' by making maximum use of the opportunities for regeneration.
Integrated Area Plans (IAPs) are the way in which Objective One can help communities. These are the plans that integrate the economic, social and environmental aspects of the Objective One programme into a framework for use in a specific area. There are eleven plans throughout Cornwall, three of which (St Austell Bay, China Clay Area, and Newquay & its Rural Hinterland) are covered by Restormel.
The Objective One Integrated Area Plan team was established in February 2001 to deliver the three IAPs for Restormel. It can help with developing and supporting community based projects who wish to apply for Objective One investment.
The RRP team is invested in by Restormel Borough Council, Objective One, the South West of England Regional Development Agency, Imerys, Cornwall County Council and Health Action Zone.
