Changing our times

We’ve simplified our opening times. From 1st July 2018 we will be open from 9.304.30 every day from Tuesday to Saturday.

This means there will be more time for our Saturday shoppers to explore our stores.

We will also be able to provide some collections and deliveries on Saturdays for folk who cannot take time off work during the week.

We will be closed so our team can rest on Sundays and Mondays.

Bedhead Benches

Our workshop team has been working on an exciting new project to reuse and upcycle unwanted bed-heads into fabulous benches for the home and garden.

Sometimes we collect bed frames that can’t be reused because parts are missing but we don’t want the wood to go to waste. These benches use up the heads, ends and slats of the bed-frames to make an attractive new piece of furniture.

It’s been a fun challenge for our workshop team. Our expert Ron has helped the volunteers to figure out how to reuse the wood and make strong sturdy bench seats. Our volunteers are local people who have enjoyed HFS courses and want to do more carpentry, restoration and painting as part of the team. Pauline, Heidi, Percival, Phil and Victor have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and we are really proud of the stunning results.

Each bench is unique. There are children’s benches as well as full-size and we have painted several in fun bright colours.

Child-size benches are £70 full price (£45 benefit discount price) and adult-size ones are up to £195 (£145 discount price).

The benches will be on sale at our Bexhill store from Friday 28th April.

pop-up bookshop needs a new home

free books how it worksOur team of bookshop volunteers is still searching for a new home for the project in Bexhill.

The pop-up bookshop reused thousands of books and encouraged people to read. The friendly volunteers also provided a welcoming place for people to pop in for a chat. People gave donations for their books which raised funds for our craft and DIY sessions at local Refuges.

Meanwhile, the shop they used was kept open, used and aired and the owner quickly found a commercial tenant.

The team is looking for an empty shop in Bexhill to continue the project – please get in touch if you’re able to help.
