What Our Service Users Say About Us
Mrs L. Gough - Tweed Close, Haydon Wick
Swindon Scrapstore is a fantastic place for local parents, childrens workers or community groups on fixed budgets to find resources. I have been a member for 3 months, but have already found some great things that are not available in regular shops or the alternative would have cost lots of money. I have discovered bits & pieces for a reward chart for my son, birthday party bags and games, made magnetic pictures & glove puppets, planted trays of seeds and put netting over our little vegetable patch. Our next project is to create our own Olympic games, so we are using leftover cones from spools of wool, bottle tops, etc to make sports cones, horse jumps and targets most of the materials would otherwise have been thrown away by companies as defective for their purpose or a by-product of manufacture. As a previous employee of a local company that has supplied waste to Swindon Scrapstore, I know that these good quality resources will otherwise end up in a skip, but a little bit of imagination recycles them into a game or a craft or a new use at very little cost to a local family or group.
Lizzie Chick, DT Technician - Kingsdown School, Swindon
I have worked now for Kingsdown School for nearly 7 years and was introduced to Swindon Scrapstore early on in my employment. As Design Technology Technician I work predominately in Food Technology, Textiles and Art . I have found Swindon Scrapstore invaluable over the years offering inspiration and resource to aid and compliment teaching and enhance the education of the pupils studying at the school. It is not unheard of for me to bring a boot load of goodies back to school ranging from fabrics, acrylics, cardboard, paint and unusual things that might come in handy! Art are always in need of pots, odds and ends tubes and the like to make create and just have fun with. Having this resource to hand gives the opportunity to offer a more unique selection of materials for the students, helps towards our financial budget all on an ethical platform in aid of a good cause and reducing land fill to boot. I am happy with the service and would highly recommend it to others.

The staff were so friendly and could not be any more helpful x
