There is shiny and coloured paper and there are baubles, glittery ribbons, bows and much more at the Crow scrap store.

So if you’re in charge of children who can’t wait to make Christmas sparkle with their home made decorations consider a visit the scrap store.

Membership costs £10 a year for individuals, groups or organisations. Members can browse through a huge hoard of craft materials donated by local businesses for reuse. Everything is individually priced and nothing too expensive.

The Scrap store is open Monday to Thursday 9.30am to 3pm and Fridays 9.30am to 12 noon.

Find the scrap store at Crow Recycling, Orchard House, Sparkbrook Street, Hillfields, Coventry, CV1 5LB. The telephone number is 0247655 2444. The e mail is crow@talktalkbusiness.net.
