The Craft Barn reopens at Chasewater this Saturday!

Grand Reopening Invitation

What a wonderful thing the Craft Barn is… and the grand relaunch is happening this Saturday!

I’m pleased to bring readers more great news from the Craft Barn shop at Chasewater Innovation Centre – it’s had a makeover, and a bit of a rebrand, and reopens this Saturday lunchtime at 12pm.

Friend of the blog, Marketing and PR Manager and top Phoenix Hospital Radio DJ Lucy Wood has dropped me a line to let me know what’s been happening up there recently. 

If you’re a bit crafty, or know someone who is, check out their store at Chasewater; this brilliant project takes clean business waste – everything from wooden crates to fabric offcuts – and uses them to make great crafting materials for the general public to browse and buy – and it’s all really cheap.

It really is an Aladdin’s Cave.

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

Dear Friends,

I am writing to you on behalf of the staff and Volunteers of Saxon Hill Craft Barn (formally The Lichfield Scrap Barn CiC). Saxon Hill Craft Barn is an Arts and Craft store with recycling at its heart. We upcycle clean waste from businesses that they no longer require, and turn it into craft making items, the Aladdin’s Cave has something for everyone!

This enterprise was set up by Saxon Hill Academy which as you know provides education for Children with Physical Disabilities and associated challenges. The sixth form pupils access the Craft Barn alongside volunteers to gain valuable work experience in retail and production.

We would like to invite you to our grand re-opening of our newly refurbished, rebranded store on Saturday 19th March 2016 at 12 noon for the official opening ceremony.

We look forward to showing you how far we have come and the exciting times ahead.

Best Wishes
Lucy Wood
