Mayor Launches Christmas At The Brighton Wood Store

wood recyclingMayor of Brighton & Hove, Cllr Dee Simson, paid a special visit to B&H Wood Recycle Project to meet hardworking volunteers and launch the annual sale of locally grown Christmas trees – in store now.

 General Manager Steve Bannatyne said: “Our annual sale of Sussex grown Christmas trees plays an important part in bringing people to us and helping in our explanation of the sustainability of wood from forest to beautifully hand-crafted furniture.”

The Mayor was introduced to some of the volunteers and staff in action, producing tables, shelves and other items made from reclaimed timber in the project’s own workshop. The project relies on income from sales of the surplus and salvaged timber it collects and the goods made by volunteers. 

“We all very much appreciated receiving the Mayor’s interest and support for the work we do making good use of waste wood, while helping volunteers learn new skills that improve their employability.”

BHWRP is a social enterprise with charitable objectives to provide training and employment opportunities to the employed and socially excluded people, by reusing and upcycling waste timber.
