|As mentioned in our Summer newsletter, we are thrilled to announce that the WoodShack, based at Acorn in Trinity, is now open for business. At an event held on September 19th Deputy Kevin Lewis, Minister of Transport and Technical Services and John Bothman, Chair of the Lloyds Bank Foundation for the Channel Islands officially opened the new venture.

The Woodshack timber recycling project is a social enterprise that will benefit a wide cross section of local people and provide people with a disability employment and training opportunities.
It is hoped that it will help in reducing the amount of material imported into the Island, cut back on local waste and carbon emissions and help to conserve a valuable natural resource.
Along with a large variety of construction timber and related products, the WoodShack also upcycles furniture and hand produces various indoor and outdoor wood products, examples of which can be seen below.
