Doors open!

A good opening day at Rough Edges & we shall now be open Weds, Thurs and Fridays from 10am – 2pm.
 Mike, pictured on the left, will be managing these initial stages. We’re very grateful to him and the others who have been giving of their time and energy thus far. Also pictured are Lloyd and Tam. Dave the sparky is also a regular face looking after our PAT testing of electrical items.

It was great to receive a substantial donation of items today from Tools for Self Reliance in Llanelli and Camarthen, which were surplus to their remit but suit ours. We hope to be able to return the compliment as we receive donated items.
 So put the word out – we’re open, looking to sell, looking for volunteers and able to receive suitable items at open times.
 Thanks for your interest.

We also expect to be opening other days when volunteers are confirmed.

Donations of suitable items, (please check the list), can also be brought to the shop during opening hours.

Feel free to call in and take a look – or if you wish, pick up some leaflets to distribute among friends, neighbours and suitable venues.

Thanks for your support
