Coronavirus Update

During the pandemic the premises that we had been using to run SCARF, kindly supported and provided by Wolverhampton College, became inaccessible in accordance with Government Guidelines and its approach to Covid 19.

Whilst this was happening Wolverhampton College underwent a series of changes, which included some external departments being brought onto the main site, where SCARF was positioned.

Wolverhampton College has, again, kindly provided alternate premises for SCARF but it is going to take some time for us to work out the logistics of this new location as well as reconfigure our stock and fittings to make this work.

With SCARF being a Community Interest Company that relies on volunteers and external support we cannot envisage a return to opening the shop until after the summer holidays at this point.

We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate the support and enquiries and will be back as soon as possible. Please do check the website and facebook because if things move faster then we will update here.

Thanks again.

Channel 4's Kirstie Allsopp Gives Black Country RePaint at SCARF a Big Thumbs Up!

Channel 4's Kirstie Allsopp Gives Black Country RePaint at SCARF a Big Thumbs Up!

If you were watching "Love it or List it" on Channel 4 Thursday 26/05/2016 you may have recognised that Kirstie was here in Wolverhampton where she visited SCARF to take advantage of Community RePaint Black Country and choose some paint with this week's guests.

Community RePaint Black Country is part of a national network of paint re-use schemes. All Community RePaint schemes collect unwanted, surplus paint and make it available to purchase at a low cost for individuals, families and communities, improving the wellbeing of people and the appearance of places across the UK. In 2015 over 432,000 litres were collected from householders, traders and paint manufacturers and was redistributed to some 2,477 organisations and over 31,000 individuals.

SCARF Manager Krystyna Sochacki said "Kirstie was very complementary about our store and was excited to look through all of the paint and materials we stock, whilst being astounded by the fact they were all saved from ending up in landfill. We hope that any coverage will help spread the news about the good work that Community RePaint do and hope that you will come and visit us!"
