AN innovate new social enterprise opened at Witchford Recycling Centre this week.
The Re-Imagine Resource Centre was officially opened by manager Karen Brenchley on Friday, offering a range of recycled goods for sale to the public for the first time.
Located within the new Stirling Way recycling centre, Re-Imagine is offering a range of materials, everything from wallpaper samples to children’s books, which have been donated by local and national businesses.
Materials which might have otherwise gone to waste are collected from businesses, processed, packaged and displayed at Re-Imagine so that the local community can reuse them for creative, artistic or play projects.
Re-Imagine is also working with secondary schools in East Cambridgeshire to provide opportunities for work experience and training for young people.
