Free Upcycling Half-Term Workshops

Free Creative Upcycling Workshops for families – February Half Term, in conjunction with West Sussex County Council

Waste isn’t waste – until it’s wasted! We hope to inspire residents to think before they throw, and to view waste differently – to see it as a resource that can be kept in use for longer.
