Lucy Wood from the Lichfield Scrap Barn’s shop at Chasewater Innovation Centre has been in touch. She’s asked me to let readers know about the great summer deals at the Barn, and all about new partnership with local company Arthur Price. Lucy has put heart and soul 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.



Local Business celebrates as Arthur Price Cutlery agree to a new deal, with Lichfield Scrap Barn CIC, giving a crafty lease of life to their clean business waste, whist supporting  Employment Opportunities for Disabled People in the Community.
