It’s been a very good year

Lucy Wood has been in touch to let me know about the first birthday celebrations recently held at the Lichfield Scrap Barn shop at Chasewater Innovation Centre. Lucy has put heart and should into making this very special community project succeed, and it’s something that I, and the wider local online community are fully supportive of.

This is a fine thing backed by the remarkable and wonderful Saxon Hill School in Lichfield. In the seemingly harsh and uncaring world we currently inhabit, it’s nice to see that these excellent people still give a damn.


The Lichfield Scrap Barn celebrated its 1st year of trading at their Chasewater Site on Saturday 20th April.


Customers, Supporters and Volunteers were invited to the Store, for free Cake and sparkling wine, as a way for The Scrap Barn to say thank you for the continued support, The Cupcakes supplied by Lazy Day Cakes of Lichfield, went down a storm with everyone.

The Lichfield Scrap Barn has experienced a great 12 months and the project has continued to grow.  Marketing and Press Coordinator Lucy Wood said, ‘We have been completely blown away by the support and demand for the services we offer, the business is on the brink of further exciting developments and we are so thrilled to have managed to build such a good foundation in our first year.’

Managing Director, Wes Morris said ‘I am delighted that Lichfield Scrap Barn is celebrating its first birthday and would like to thank all the staff who have supported us and the customers who continue to visit.’

The Lichfield Scrap Barn have recently secured possession of a second unit which will allow our team the space to provide crafting workshops, and further develop the services we provide. Watch this space to find out more…
