Despite 2020 being a rollercoaster of a year, Community RePaint Cambridgeshire was thrilled to announce the opening of a second retail outlet for their scheme in Wisbech.

The move comes after the incredible success of the Community RePaint Cambridgeshire scheme located in March, which has been operating since 2011 and is now one of the largest schemes in the Network. Run by Cambridgeshire Community Reuse and Recycling Network (CCORRN), they collect around 30,000 litres of paint each year.

The new Wisbech store will sell “rescued resources creatively repurposed”, including DIY supplies, workwear, arts and crafts, furniture and Community RePaint’s remanufactured ReColour paint. In 2019, Community RePaint Cambridgeshire redistributed 47,735 litres of paint and are excited to bring their impressive and inspiring work to Wisbech.

ReColour was started when we identified a need to reuse larger quantities of leftover paint,  increasing the amount of paint we can divert from the waste stream and then meeting the demand from the community for good quality affordable paint. The paint is available in over 18 colours and comes in 5 litres containers.

The Wisbech store can be found at the Remo – Eco Superstore, 55 The Horsefair Shopping Centre, Wisbech, PE13 1AR. They are open from 10am to 4pm (closed Wednesdays & Sundays).
