Basildon-based newcomers to the network New Life Wood held their launch event on Saturday 23rd March 2019. Local MP Stephen Metcalfe along to cut the ribbon and around 100 people came down to see what was on offer and meet the amazing New Life Wood volunteers and Trustees. There was music to entertain, teas and coffees and even some free craft activities for the little ones to keep them amused.
New Life Wood Chair of Trustees Steve Currell said:
“Community Wood Recycling is a great concept – it saves wood from being wasted and going into landfill, gives people a chance to buy wood for DIY at bargain prices, and has a proven track record in helping people who aren’t always given a chance into work by creating volunteering, training and job opportunities.’’
