The idea

Vintage Worx has management of a café, community rooms and Victorian kitchen garden facilities based in a 54-hectare Victorian park. This project will see the continuation of their green volunteering scheme for local residents aimed at increasing skill levels, decreasing unemployment and reducing isolation. The project will also involve the setting up of a new, volunteer-run community upcycle shop to help sustain the Vintage Worx social enterprise.
