We're the Waterside Scrapstore.

Based in Totton the Waterside Scrapstore collects clean unwanted waste materials from local businesses and recycles them for use in art, craft and learning activities for children.

From rainy day projects, home education supplies and seasonal crafts to charity makes, toddler group supplies and school art supplies, we're perfect. We are unique in the New Forest and part of the Reuseful UK scrapstore network for the benefit of children everywhere.

Our network of members support us while unlocking the huge potential offered by the Scrapstore including huge sacks of materials for only £2.50.

We are entirely run by volunteers. We're always looking for new people to help us, give us a shout if you think it is for you.

You can now find the Waterside Scrapstore on Facebook.
